Last winter Grassroot Soccer won a Business Opportunities Grant from British Airways, providing the organization with 10 worldwide roundtrip tickets, 5 free global shipments, and $1000 towards hotel accommodation.  Following a very successful year in which GRS has educated and inspired over 50,000 African youth, BA has now selected GRS to be the face of the Airline’s Face to Face campaign.  GRS Founder and CEO Tommy Clark was recently interviewed on camera by British Airways for the campaign, and his full page advert will run in the following print media over the next six months:
