GRASSROOT SOCCER (GRS). Sport is an incredible way to reach young people – to educate and inspire them. GRS eads the way, coupling rigor and focus with innovation and passion, to figure out the very best ways to have the most impact. A global non-profit organization, Grassroot Soccer (GRS) has a decade of proven experience leveraging the global power of soccer to prevent HIV and AIDS. HIV is a disease that will be defeated. Young people, the group who have been hardest hit, also represent the greatest force for change. HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death for adolescents in Africa. Almost half of all infections occur in young people. GRS has mobilized 700,000 would-be victims into informed and empowered actors in the effort to end HIV. As a 13 year old GRS graduate in Zimbabwe wrote: “Doctors and scientists are doing their best. The solution is in our hands. Now let’s get out there.”
