Looking over our shoulders we see unity and peace 2010 soccer world cup brought to South Africa and Africa as a continent. New Jerusalem Children’s Home was given a soccer field for it children to continue the love of football, with which we aim to continue soccer skills once seen on the mother soil in 2010 by pro’s of the game. We equally see remarkable skills on our soccer field and smile as children come together for a common goal and fun with a soccer ball on their feet.
Children of today have been denied many child development programs; sport has suffered while many other socially unacceptable activities continually win the streets of our surrounding communities, for years we have known sporting codes to be a key of social discipline and unifier amongst communities and children of all ages, New Jerusalem Children’s Home and MLFA’ is committed to re-establishing the concept of a child safety through soccer, allowing children from all walks of the communities to share a soccer pitch together, celebrate and to wish each other well when they win or get lashed.
“We are a youth and children’s home; our core service is not only in championing the right of children, we wish to see them taking pride in their talent and being able to take the best they are in sports and discipline they learned in sports to the streets. The only way to build this confident in them is to let them lead and welcome friends into their very own soccer grounds and share the fun together” said Paul – NJCH soccer coach.
