Shin pads donation

Under-8 team at the Hout Bay Football Club.

Maalikah Kacobs, who established No Hate, described as a “positive T-shirt movement” donated shin pads to the Under-8 team at the Hout Bay Football Club (HBFC). No Hate was born to tackle racism, but it has slowly turned into a rise against homophobia, xenophobia and bullying. Her T-shirts come with phrases such as “laundry is the only thing that should be separated by colour” and “labels belong on products, not people”. “HBFC took part in a soccer tournament earlier this year. The Under-8 team played against my son’s team, Salt River Blackpool FC, and I saw how the boys got tackled and hurt, without any protective gear and it made me so sad,” Ms Jacobs said.
