Teen Organizes Equipment Drive for Children in Africa
A NewYork City 13-year old,Alexander Straus, initiated a program to send soccer equipment to Malawi. The executive director of the Afya Foundation, where Straus was volunteering, mentioned that there had been some interest in getting athletic equipment to the country in southeast Africa. Straus realized that he and so many of his friends quickly outgrow their soccer equipment and some very useable cleats, shin guards and balls were littering his friends’ closets. He organized his friends and parents to donate, gather and clean the equipment, which is now being used to provide a new outlet for children with very little recreational opportunities.
