Grassroot Soccer is grateful to The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for being one of our first supporters.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was a key donor for our first year of programming in Zimbabwe in 2003, and supported the Children’s Health Council to complete a rigorous evaluation of the GRS curriculum and overall model.
The evaluation concluded that the Grassroot Soccer curriculum is a “culturally appropriate, internationally suitable, creative, effective way to educate at-risk youth about HIV/AIDS and its prevention.” In 2005, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation then invested in the scale up of GRS programs in South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Botswana.
Grassroot Soccer is a current partner on a Gates Grand Challenges award in South Africa, implementing a project focused on increasing sexual and reproductive health knowledge and school retention among adolescent girls.
