Play for the Union
THE STATE OF THE UNION COALITION
Paula is a 19-year from semi rural Mozambique who manages her uncle’s kiosk. Irungu is a 72-year-old man from Nairobi Kenya, Alexis is a 14-year-old farmer from a hillside town in Rwanda and Brigitte is a 24-year-old woman who was forced to marry at age 15. They all have something in common, they love football and can play, very well. Paula is sure she can teach a lesson or two to Drogba, Irungu thinks he is Roger Mila, Alexis is sure he is the next Ronaldinho, Brigitte is in love with Samuel Eto. For 5 months, the campaign will mobilize at least 10 000 people by following the lives of Paula, Irungu, Alex, Brigitte and 18 other Africans as they struggle to live the lives that the African Union and its various instrument promise, just as they train and plan to play a friendly game at the 2012 June African Union Summit in Malawi.
