||Grassroot Soccer is an international AIDS awareness and educational organization. Founded in 2002 by current and former professional soccer players, the group's mission is to mobilize the global soccer community in order to better combat the AIDS epidemic in Africa.
Currently running programs in Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Zambia, Grassroot Soccer trains professional African soccer players to act as role models while educating youth about critical life-skills and HIV/AIDS prevention strategies. As well, the organization focuses on helping youth to adopt healthy behaviors and to reach out to others in the community.
Grassroot Soccer is currently seeking like-minded partners that can help to spread this behavior change model and curriculum all over Africa.
