If you can see it, you can be it.

It’s a simple idea that can change the world.

Young people need to see a healthy future for themselves. They need to see themselves in the leaders of today so that they can be the leaders of tomorrow.

When adolescents are empowered to make healthy decisions, get the care they need, and break down harmful gender norms that hold everyone back, their healthy future can start today. As a 14-year-old Grassroot Soccer participant named Unathi from Soweto, South Africa stated, “Anything is possible regardless of your gender."

Thanks to donors like you, Grassroot Soccer participants like Unathi have the knowledge, life skills, mentorship, access to health services, and ongoing support they need to stay healthy and become the leaders of tomorrow.

This summer, I want to reach 1,200 adolescents like Unathi. Please make a gift to Grassroot Soccer today.
