Two great friends and mentors of mine, Sarah and Ben Snyder, were recently in Mtubatuba, South Africa, where Woza's Executive Director Chris lived and first began to conceive of the idea for Woza back in 2010. They were able to spend some quality time with Chris' old partner in crime, Sheldon Hughes, and his incredible smalltown Zulu soccer academy.

Sarah did a great writeup of their visit, which we've copied below and hope you enjoy. And any interested teenage soccer players can be immersed in South African soccer culture on the Woza South Africa trip this summer!

Here's Sarah's writeup.

And here's a great photo of the Mtuba Football Academy taken in 2014:
