SSCS part 4

So on Tuesday we had our first big group meeting, up til now it has just been AMICAALL with the different partners.

MTN explained the voting system, the FA was very helpful and open to allowing access to the players, managers and executives for the project. Lots of people benefit from this event in numerous ways. AMICAALL & PSI (the Male circumcision campaign)get to direct talk to the teams. By the way the males aged 18-35 which have a near 50% HIV infection rate are one of the hardest groups to reach. FA and the teams get to raise some money and MTN gets to promote its business and help with a charity event. The players get to help out with charity in their own community and the fans get to support their favorite team.

At the meeting , we sorted through the many challenges and questions and now its full speed ahead with the Shiselweni Soccer Charity Spectacular

It is amazing how well this has come together
