Nandos, Embassies, and Tennis

Team up began the day with work to prepare for our community service project at the end of the week- the Team Up kids will go teach different Grassroot games to middle schoolers.  We will also be making videos about the importance of decreasing stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS.

After a morning of hard work, we set out to have a crazy and fun-packed afternoon.  We frequented the US Nando's in Dupont Circle for lunch, before heading to the South African embassy.  It was quite a scene- all 15 kids sitting around a conference table with four members of the embassy, to inform them of all we have been working on since our meeting last year in South Africa.

Next up, we headed NW to Leggs Mason for a tennis tournament, where one of Tspence's best friends, and a founding boardmember of the Grassroot Project, was playing in the match.  The kids loved meeting a professional tennis player who is so dedicated to our cause!

As we write this, the kids are dancing to the "Michael Jackson Experience" on Wi at Diamond's house!

Signing off to lead a debrief of the day!!
