FOOTBALL – THE INTERNATIONAL SPORT


Football (Soccer) is a fantastic team sport that needs very little money or equipment. You just need a ball. Goals are often fashioned out of some wood and string and I have yet to see kids playing on grass in Africa. The kids love it and you can help very quickly and cheaply. Buy the kids a football. For $2-3 you will keep a neighborhood of children off the streets and on the playing field.

RUNNING - A TRULY AFRICAN SPORT - Africa
RUNNING - A TRULY AFRICAN SPORT

Why Are African runners so good? Ever watched the Olympics? Runners from countries you might not otherwise hear of win medals every time. Genetics? Maybe there is a more simple reason. Running doesn’t need equipment. I grew up in America where to play American Football you needed hundreds of dollars per person just to practice. Running requires heart, stamina and skill. It does not require a lot of money. Combine that with some excellent weather and a lot of pride – you get some of the greatest runners in history.

Equipment: Even shoes are optional.
