Soccer Saves Kicks Off in Africa

In 2009 and 2010, Soccer Saves target will be the Save the Children programs in Africa. With the World Cup coming to South Africa the summer of 2010, soccer will be at fever pitch affording powerful opportunities to transform lives.

Save the Children pilot programs will begin in Ethiopia in Fall 2009. After careful design, monitoring and evaluation of the pilot program, the Soccer Saves goal is to extend the program reach to one million kids in the 33 African countries in which the Save the Children Alliance works.

In the future, Soccer Saves is committed to sharing program materials and the results of its work as a prototype for other likeminded organizations that may desire to adopt some or all of its methodologies.
