Project: Streetwise Soccer & Hope Journey Childrens Hospital

I've been for a week in Germany now and I already miss Cape Town so much that I'm absolutely sure to go back some time! During the last month I worked half of the time in a soccer project. Together with other coaches I went to different schools around Cape Town to coach the kids basic rules of soccer. It was so impressive how motivated the kids are and how important the feeling of being part of a team is for them. The rest of the time  I went to the Children's Hospital, a hospital for children who are too weak to go home after they got their medical treatment. I played with kids and fed them, it was such a great experience! I can even imagine to adopt a little child when I'm a bit older!

Thanks You2Africa, as soon as I have the chance, I will come back to Cape Town!
