“It was chilling seeing a group of 16-year-old boys (but really men) showing maturity beyond their years, fulfilling the role of positive role model to the younger kids when they themselves could have very well never had one.”

“Khayelitsha, once a battleground during the end of Apartheid, has transitioned from a place of riots to a place of community, and the kids on the soccer team are leading the charge.” 

-Joey Besl, Semester at Sea

“The Fire Fighters started as just an idea that the head coach, Power, had years ago to throw together a soccer team to give kids something to do after school and keep them off the streets. It has evolved into an amazing program that uses the few resources they have to put togetheramazing teams. The boys are incredible players, from the U11 to the U17 teams, and they do incredible work off the field too.”
