Kids to benefit from R. Madrid
About 200 children stand to benefit from a partnership between Real Madrid Foundation and Sharing Youth Centre, Nsambya, in Kampala.
Real Madrid Foundation, a social responsibility arm of the Spanish club, approved a proposal from the youth centre in Kampala last year to help improve life for disadvantaged children.
And Victor Dea Arce Ludema, the coordinator of the Real Madrid Junior Academy, arrived in the country on Friday and has been taking over 20 coaches through drills on how to handle junior players at Nsambya.
“Our principle objective is to see children study as they play football,” said Dea Arce, after training on Monday in Kampala.
“It is very important for Real Madrid Foundation that the children from the entire world, in this case Uganda, leave the streets, play football, study and leave a comfortable life.
The 20 coaches, whose training ends on Wednesday, will thereafter pass on the skills to youngsters between ages of seven and 17 amounting to about 200 at the sharing centre.
