World Cup Inspires Africa (and you can too!)
Ah, the World Cup... I love it. The world loves it. And Africa is nuts about it! Especially this year as it's hosted on this continent for the first time.
Much has been said already about how football inspires young Africans. Desmond Tutu and friends have even made a special point of talking about it.
We know a lot of young men in the HIV/AIDS and poverty ravaged neighborhoods of our city who love the game, play it passionately and hope to find a way out of their circumstances through it. Our Wild Hope sponsored efforts through football equip for success in the WHOLE of life. We've got a lot of great things going on through our Nyota Youth Sports and Community Service Center. The heart of it is football and leadership :-)
Please take a moment and go to our Wild Hope Stories blog and hear about what we're up to and how you can help young Africans through "The Beautiful Game."
