Please help me in raising funds for a charity which is both close to my heart and one that i've been actively involved since it's inception. Grassroots Soccer (GRS) uses the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize communities to stop the spread of HIV. GRS’s activities are divided two areas: global activities and in-country activities. Globally, GRS focuses on curriculum development, measurement and evaluations, strategic development and financial management. In-country, our teams execute on the GRS and partner funded programs managing all aspects required to fulfill our mission and satisfy the funders’ financial and programmatic needs. GRS’s global team identifies partners capable of sustaining a football based HIV prevention program, matches them with funders, provides in-country training and ongoing technical assistance and assists in the overall capacity building of these organizations. Through these activities, GRS engages hundreds of young role model educators (coaches, teachers and peer educators) on a part time or volunteer basis in several African countries and to date has engaged thousands of young kids on life skills needed to avoid and prevent the spread of this global pandemic. I've had the good fortune to work with GRS on the ground in Lusaka, Zambia and see firsthand the good that this program provides.
