The Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation and the Playford City Council have joined up with ALDI MiniRoos to provide a Kick-Off program with a difference in South Australia.

Children from disadvantaged communities are taking part in an ALDI MiniRoos football and enjoying the chance to get out on the pitch and have a kick around.

Louise Benoit from Playford City Council (pictured) has played a key part in getting the program up and running, alongside Football Federation South Australia, so kids in her community have an opportunity to dream of being football stars in the future.

And the link with the Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation helped the program come to life.

Roger Rasheed said: "I have seen first-hand the difference sport can make can make to children – to their lives now and to their futures.

"This is what our Sports Foundation is all about – giving these children access to a better life by giving them access to sport.”
