Kobe Bryant visited a Football Training Center in Soweto, South Africa with Nike, built to train 20,000 students on the game of football while also being educated about HIV/AIDS.
Kobe released the following statement:
“While basketball is my chosen sport, I’ve been a football fan all my life. So to be in South Africa for the first time and see how Nike is utilizing sport to inspire youth and educate them around HIV/AIDS is amazing. It’s crystal clear that this center will help keep kids out of trouble, improve their game, as well as empower them with the life skills they need to live better and HIV free.”
