Nelson Mandela Children's Fund

So Mr. Mandela is doing an amazing thing for Swaziland, his organization is funding the creation of a soccer league of 6 teams in town, which allows boys and girls between 10 and 17 to play on the teams. His organization buys the balls, uniforms, ball pumps, socks and gives money to spend. And our office is in charge of handling hte organization, which I have very limited involvement in so far.

But I showed up for the first game and was the referee, I am certified in that in the US also, although that is expired also.

And it turns out the team that lost is the Ward 4 team, which is the area of the city I live in and coached by one of my players. They practice at 430 just before our practice starts.

Anyway, went home and continued the same routine with the puppy.
