Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Grassroot Soccer uses the power of soccer to save lives by preventing the spread of HIV among those with the most new infections–youth in Africa. By the next World Cup in 2014, Grassroot Soccer will double its impact by educating one million young people about AIDS and inspiring them to live healthier, more productive lives.

 

Our vision is a world mobilized through soccer to create an AIDS free generation.

 

The Problem

 

HIV is a preventable disease that can be stopped if we act now. New infections are trending down and recent research shows that existing tools, such as HIV tests and AIDS drugs, are having a dramatic effect on halting the spread of the disease. While the progress is encouraging, the spread of this disease remains tragically unnecessary.

 

The nations of Sub-Saharan Africa represent nearly 70 percent of people living with HIV and young people are among the hardest hit. Now more than ever, girls and boys are at the center of this epidemic.

  • An estimated 33 million people are living with AIDS worldwide; 22 million of those are in Africa.
  • Each day 5,000-6,000 new infections occur among youth.
  • 45 percent of new infections occur among boys and girls between 15 and 24 years old.
  • Young women ages 15 to 24 years old are as much as eight times more likely than young men to be HIV positive.

The Solution

 

Addressing AIDS is the first step countries need to take to create healthier communities that can grow and prosper. 

 

Our Program

 

Our founders, who drive the organization’s work, are professional soccer players who lost many of their teammates and friends to AIDS. They decided they had to do something and created Grassroot Soccer, which has transformed the lives of 485,000 boys and girls in Africa.

 

We use multiple approaches delivered through soccer to prevent HIV among youth, including education to adopt healthy behaviors and referrals for testing and treatment. Developments in 2010-2011 ushered in a new era in HIC prevention. Research shows that combining HIV prevention methods into a package approach can sharply reduce new HIV infections. Grassroot Soccer understands that every community differs in its access to services, cultural norms and levels of HIV education. Our program develops tailor-made HIV prevention options for the communities we serve.
