THE STORY:

In 1991 the Highlanders Football Club was the most successful team in Zimbabwe.

Today, many of them have died from AIDS.

Founder, Tommy Clark, MD conceived of the idea after having played soccer professionally in Zimbabwe where he witnessed first hand both the devastation of HIV and the fanatical popularity of soccer. Together with a group of friends who had similar experiences, he and co-founders Methembe Ndlovu, Ethan Zohn and Kirk Friedrich created Grassroot Soccer.

OUR VISION:
An HIV-Free Generation

OUR MISSION:
Use the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize communities to stop the spread of HIV

OUR DECLARATION:
By the 2014 World Cup measurably reduce HIV incidence among young adults by providing 1 million youth with the knowledge, life skills and support to live HIV-free

To accomplish this, we're using these topics in our Skillz curriculum:
- Understanding the nature of HIV/AIDS
- Making healthy decisions
- Building support networks
- Reducing stigma and discrimination
- Addressing gender issues
- Increasing access to testing and treatment

Themes to Skillz Curriculum:
Know the Game, Build your team, Make your move.

2010 promises to be an important and historic year for Grassroot Soccer. The 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa provides a unique and powerful opportunity to make a lasting impact on the HIV pandemic. For the first time, the world’s most-watched sporting event—with billions of viewers and millions of visitors—will be played on the African continent.

Just $25 will help Grassroot Soccer educate one young African with comprehensive HIV prevention knowledge and mobilize them to act as a change agent in their community.
