Why?

We have been able to identify some of the major causes and foundational flaws of the African Esports sector. South Africans over time, have managed to provide international-standard Esports events and highly competitive players, however only a small percentage of the nation are benefitting and participating. Although we have outlined actions to be taken in order to achieve our goals, we are not ruling out the fact that it might be a bit challenging to measure our success rate.

We would consider our foundation to have attained great success if we are able to scale through all the following factors:

Connect & Empower

To connect and empower a minimum of 1,000,000 youths to participate in school or community-hub leagues over 3 years.

Integrate into schools

To integrate 1% of ordinary schools in the basic education sector per year with Esports-ready technology and support.

Integrate into higher edu.

To integrate 10% of Tertiary institutions per year with Esports-ready technology and support.

What we do

We streamline our activities in AESA to areas where we know we can produce faster results when it comes to getting youths, schools, and tertiary institutions involved in adopting Esports as a formal activity.
These are some of the things we do at AESA:
Align private enterprise activities and government projects at a provincial and national level
Professional and strategic framework and policy development to ensure inclusive growth of Esports
Build and maintain trusted relationships and closing the gap between all stakeholders in public and private sectors
Capacity building across all tiers, from new to professional-level of players
Align relevant ministries to ensure direct economic development and impact
Youth advocacy and empowerment through education and entrepreneurial models
Promotion of youth involvement in Politics and Governance
Sourcing for scholarships for students
