BENEFITING: A BIGFAMILY INC

THE STORY:

As a referee who have officiated in the U.S. Soccer Federation Referee Program (USSF), and high schools, Ihave witnessed the joy of children, their families, friends, and even strangers as they come together to enjoy soccer games. Safety of the soccer players is principal. The basic protective gear worn by players reassures guardians that their children are in safe hands.On the contrary, my heart breaks when I visit Zimbabwe and go into some of the communities of my childhood to watch local children,after hard seven hours of school and thereafter cattle herding with very little to eat and no recreational time at all. As they tend to the goats and cattle they make do with balls made from newspapers and plastic bags, bare feet, and rusty goals (if at all there is one) that look like an accident waiting to happen.  Playing the game they love using balls made from newspapers and plastic bags, rusty goal posts and running around with their bare feet in the thorny grounds. Despite their predicament, the children play as they continue on their quest to enjoy the moments they have together as they perfect their skills in the sport that unites them.”
