Actress Charlize Theron is hoping to transform her native South Africa into the best place possible to hold the upcoming World Cup.
In 2010, South Africa will be hosting the tournament, and Theron is looking forward to being a part of the celebration.
Her African Outreach charity is raising funds to build soccer fields in different areas throughout Africa. Rural kids are the inspiration behind building the fields. Theron wants them to be able to have nice places to play.
She said, “I love soccer and it’s great for Africa that we’re finally hosting it (World Cup). We’re so proud. I started a program about two years ago that’s become very integrated and, in honor of the World Cup, we’re building soccer fields in very rural communities, where African children have no access to play this sport.”
