Grassroot Soccer is an adolescent health organization that leverages the power of soccer to educate, inspire and mobilize youth to overcome their greatest health challenges, live healthier, more productive lives, and be agents for change in their communities. Grassroot Soccer first began programs in South Africa in 2006, and has steadily built a very strong local infrastructure.
