Zimbabwe was represented by a girls’ team at the Street Child World Cup Rio 2014, with the support of our partners Grassroots Soccer (GRS).

GRS use football to mobilise and educate communities and individuals on HIV awareness and prevention.

During the Street Child World Cup the girls from Zimbabwe showed the world the true spirit of football creating the greatest goal celebration of all time in their match against Indonesia. The uniting of two nations on the pitch led to the founding of a new nation fair to socially excluded children off it, “Zimdonesia”. Watch story here.
