More than 140 beneficiaries from the schools that the Foundation develops in the Asian country in collaboration with the Fundación Esperanza y Alegría (Hope and Joy Foundation) take part in the tournament.
 
These days of sports and education have the objective that competition is another scenario in which to share the values ​​of team sports. Thus, it has gathered 14 teams from seven schools and a total of 140 beneficiaries during two days that culminate with the presentation of trophies for values: respect, self-esteem, teamwork, equality, motivation, autonomy and fair play.

Twenty students and 6 coaches from the Marykulam school had the opportunity to leave their locality, which for many was their first time, and to travel through their country to participate in the tournament as well. The closing event was attended by the local partner, the Fundación Esperanza y Alegría, and the partners in the field, the TMSSS and We Care Center.
