Children's stylist Alethea Gold has been traveling South Africa in the weeks approaching the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Working alongside a photographer, Gold is documenting the country's children and their love of soccer. The sport has become a positive force in the children's lives, keeping them off the street and away from negative influences.
The book Gold is producing will raise money for MaAfrika Tikkun, a nonprofit supported by Nelson Mandela, that aids South Africa's vulnerable children.
