2010 월드컵을 앞두고 열기가 고조되고 있는 남아프리카공화국

Football fever is moving across South Africa. With the FIFA 2010 World Cup fast approaching, young people are getting excited that one of world's biggest sporting event is taking place in their country.


Approximately 300 children have gathered for a day long sporting festival at Huhudi stadium. The community of around 40,000 people sits on the outskirts of Vryberg, a rural farming town in North West Province. This township, like others is a legacy of apartheid, when the black majority was segregated to the fringe and still suffers from high levels of poverty.


Today's sporting festival is one of 21 taking place from May till July to reach the most remote and poorest parts of the country with an opportunity to show case their own sporting talents and celebrate the World Cup in their own community.


Barbara Sarachera is a mentor to many young girls. As a University student, she comes home every weekend to play as well as coaches a girl's netball team. For her, sport is an important way to keep children busy an out of trouble.


SOUNDBITE (English) Barbara Saruchera, Mentor, Coach and Netball player:
"There are plenty of kids here. Where would they be right now if it was not for this event? At home getting more mischievous like teenagers of today. Teenage pregnancy right now is very high, especially in this community. They drink, do all kinds of things, bad stuff, drink alcohol, drugs so this is something to keep kids busy and it gets them active as they grow older and discover their talents."


The festivals are part of an ongoing sports for development programme organized by the Ministry of Education and UNICEF through four non government organizations.


In poor communities like Huhudi, where unemployment is high and many parents move to larger city in search of jobs, children are often left to their own devices.


Many of the young boys are excited that their football heroes will be in South Africa. It fuels their own ambition that with more practice and time of the football field, they too can succeed.
