South Africa is faced by diverse social ills marked by self-interests taking precedence over humanity. Soccer and education entities are significant agents of constructive growth and development in any country undergoing social, political and economic transitional phases. These instruments of nationbuilding are positioned in tackling misplaced interests of avarice and corruption impeding the country's prosperity. Soccer channels its audiences in behaving in accordance with the founding principles.

This paper discusses the reconstruction and transformation of a divided society using soccer and education.
