YfU S.A celebrates World Cup on African soil!
The Junior Volunteer Council could not let this prestigious event pass by without making its
mark! On Wednesday, the 30th
of July, the Cape volunteers headed to the Waterfront with their
YfU t-shirts, flags, soccer hats and VUVUZELAS to show the world that we too are celebrating
Africas humanity- KENAKO!
Thanks to Erin Lotz, secretary on the JVC Board, we were lucky enough to be given the
opportunity to appear on television as part of a World Cup feature (to be broadcast soon!).
Waving the flags of our host countries, we cheered and celebrated the fact that we were lucky
enough to have had the opportunity to engage with cultures from across the world long before
the World Cup! The junior volunteers in the Cape were interviewed about their involvement
with YfU, as well as their sentiments about having so many tourists from our partnering
countries descend upon us!
There is no doubt that we have been sharing and learning about our continents humanity since
being part of YfU. We came to the conclusion that we truly are lucky to have our own world
cup 365 days a year! We love this great organization because it has enabled us to learn about
our country, continent and the world!
After a very successful shoot, we embarked on a very interesting boat ride in an orange soccer
ball (yes!) along the Waterfront! We were making the circle bigggger in the water, as the
soccer ball boat was able to spin on water at 360 degrees! Eish.just another fun-packed day
in the life a YfU volunteer.
