Street Soccer: This is a miniaturized form of the game recognized
and supported by FIFA, played on a field 25mX15m and teams of 5
playing in a squad of 8. It is desirable that 3 of the squad are
girls. This form may be played by players of any age but we are
supporting this sport mainly in primary schools in Lehae, Diepkloof
and Kliptown areas as part of the Life’s a Ball initiative.
Soweto .co.za celebrated Arbor week with tree planting at the Lehae Primary school in Lehae to the south of Soweto and at Nandi Primary School in Diepkloof Ext.
At Lehae members of staff of Bloomberg the Financial Information company based in Sandton, joined the members of the Roots&Shoots youth group over two days. The local youngsters from the R&S group are volunteers working with the educators at the school to assist in the development of the learners in the field of sport and environment.
Trees and refreshments were kindly sponsored by Bloomberg and the event was co-organised by the Jane Goodall Institute South Africa and Soweto Youth and Development Projects.
In Diepkloof Ext. Soweto the tree-planting was initiated and sponsored by the Southern African Association for Stationery, Home and Office Products in association with Staedtler and Pick and Pay Hypermarket Maponya Mall in Soweto who kindly sponsored the food and drinks.
The Diepkloof and Kliptown Roots & Shoots teams worked with the educators and learners of Nandi Primary to prepare the holes and plant the trees. The event was made really special by the singing of special songs to honour trees which were composed and sung by the children of the school.
Miss Soweto graced the occasion and assisted in the planting-she was a big hit with the children and the youth.
Again the event was arranged by Soweto Youth and Development Projects and KDR in association with the Jane Goodall Institute of South Africa.
