Who we are

Ekota originally started with a sporting focus but has expanded into a social movement through our approach and various activities. Our vision at Ekota is “Empowering communities and future generations through sports, education, and opportunities’’


At Ekota there is always an activity and project to get involved with, and we aim to keep our communities updated on all our latest news and developments.


We are always working on developing and expanding our offer and the ability of Ekota to do this work is dependent on funding. If you are interested in making a contribution through our beneficial sponsorship opportunities, then please explore how you can help individuals to reach their true potential.

Join Us

Communities are at the heart of Ekota, and they are our superpower. We believe in utilising the skills and energies within our communities to help support our activities and projects. If you are interested in supporting our existing work through volunteering or have an idea about a project then do get in touch with us.
