The Hollywood Foundation continues to make significant strides in community development through its dedicated CSI programme. Committed to fostering the growth of sports in local communities, the Foundation ensures that budding sports talents are not hindered by the lack of funding and resources. This initiative is centred around uplifting the community and its youth, securing a brighter future for sports in the country.

Sports play a crucial role in addressing social ills affecting young people, teaching them essential skills like teamwork and responsibility. Recognising this, the Hollywood Foundation, through its CSI efforts, has been pivotal in providing necessary sports equipment and support. In April 2024, the Foundation made a significant impact in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) by contributing rugby kits and equipment to grassroots rugby clubs, empowering young athletes to pursue their passion without limitations.

The CSI contribution of rugby kits and equipment was a game-changer for Siripat Lions RC, providing the young athletes with the tools they need to excel and develop their skills further. “This contribution from the Hollywood Foundation is invaluable. It will inspire our players to reach new heights,” said Deon Naicker, Siripat Lions RC Chairman.
