Highlanders’ new signing Bukhosi “Zakhu” Sibanda attended a Grassroots Soccer graduation ceremony at Mawaba Primary School aimed at inspiring and mobilising youths to overcome their challenges.
Sibanda is an ambassador for Grassroots Soccer, which is an adolescent health organisation that leverages the power of soccer to educate youths in developing countries to live healthier, more productive lives and be agents for change in their communities.
Posting on his Twitter timeline, Sibanda said: “As an ambassador of Grassroots Soccer, yesterday (Wednesday) I attended the Grassroots Soccer graduation at Mawaba Primary School. I’m glad to be having this positive impact on society. It takes such little things to give back to the community.”
Grassroots Soccer also engages youth in activity-based learning and creates safe spaces where young people feel comfortable asking questions.
Sibanda signed a one-year contract with Bosso after a brief stint in South Africa with Cape Town-based National First Division club Ubuntu. The Chronicle
