Charlize Theron has big plans for the World Cup.
The Academy Award winner’s Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project is teaming up with LAFC Chelsea Soccer Club in Los Angeles to build community soccer programs for underprivileged children in South Africa. In addition to soccer fields, uniforms and equipment, kids involved in the program will receive health education and services.
The project will serve schools in South Africa’s Umkhanyakude District, an area plagued by ahigh rate of HIV infection. She hopes to have the first fields built by the time the World Cup begins June 11.
