A Game For Life    
Grassroot Soccer project coordinator, Nolusindiso "Titie" Plaatjie, uses soccer to educate South African youth about HIV/AIDS prevention. She describes her childhood in the poverty-stricken city of Port Elizabeth and how soccer gave her the drive to be who she is today.

Nolusindiso "Titie" Plaatjie was born in Peddie and now lives in Port Elizabeth. She studied Human Movement Science at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University and dreams of becoming an engineer. In 2001, Nolusindiso was named captain of the provincial team and is a well known soccer star at provincial level. She has been playing soccer since the age of five. She joined Grassroot Soccer specifically to assist with HIV/AIDS awareness believing that the fight against HIV/AIDS is a fight for the world. Currently working as Port Elizabeth Project Coordinator, Titie is a key facilitator in raising HIV/AIDS awareness among youth and people of her community.
