"Football For Hope. Energy For Hope": Yingli Green Energy Supplies Solar Solutions For The 16th Football For Hope Centre In South Africa

"I would like to thank Yingli Green Energy for their contributions in our social campaign '20 Centres for 2010' and the installation of the solar panels that are crucial for the sustainability of the Centres", stated Mr. Jerome Valcke, General Secretary of FIFA.

"We are happy to bring light and hope to the children in Africa," said Mrs. Judy Tzeng Lee, Vice President of Global Marketing at Yingli Green Energy. "Even though the project is coming to an end, the Centres will keep on supporting young people for many years. We look forward to continuing our partnership with FIFA in creating a more sustainable future through our expertise in renewable energy products and our passion for football."

The new centre in Alexandra represents a special place as football will be used to combat AIDS. In this, Grassroot Soccer is playing an important role. The South African non-profit organization is relying on football to reach young people and educate them about AIDS.

"Football is a popular sport and attracts youths all over the world," stated Mr. James Donald, Head of Grassroot Soccer for South Africa. "At the Alexandra Centre, we want to use the opportunity to educate youths about AIDS and teach them how they can avoid this disease. AIDS continues to be a major problem in Africa. The new Centre is an ideal spot to address this concern."
