Great news from London regarding 1GOAL, ONE’s partner for the football World Cup.
South African President Zuma met today with UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown and announced that South Africa will host a global summit on education during the World Cup this summer. Aaron Mokoena, South Africa’s football captain and 1GOAL Ambassador, who met with President Zuma said “I am delighted that the Government of South Africa had decided to host a summit for education for all children” and Her Majesty Queen Rania (Co-Founder and Global Co-Chair of 1GOAL) congratulated President Zuma and Prime Minister Brown on “their vision and commitment to make global education the greatest goal of the South Africa World Cup 2010.”
