Score was founded in the sprawling township of Khayelitsha, near Cape Town, by visionary US Olympic rower Juliet Thompson, in 1991. Led by Juliet, a team of five American volunteers worked in 5 schools in Khayelitsha, coaching and teaching sport for several months at the beginning of that year.
At the time, the project was ground breaking, a unique effort to give impoverished township children a chance play against the backdrop of apartheid South Africa and use sport as the basis of cultural exchange.
Empowering girls and young women is also a particular focus, as is promoting gender equity. While remaining sensitive to cultural practices and viewpoints.
