NEWS | 02/03/2020The partner from the Japanese football schools donated some balls for the children at the Battambang school.
The beneficiaries were delighted with this gift and did not miss a moment to start training with their new balls. They then shared a snack and recalled the visit made last season by the students of the schools in Japan. These schools are developed with the support of GFM (Global Football Management) and every year they train more than 600 children in football and values, and since last season they have been collaborating with this socio-sports school in Battambang to ensure its sustainability.
Five years of activity
The Real Madrid Foundation socio-sports schools in Battambang began their activities in 2015, with the support of Sauce and the Apostolic Prefecture of the city, setting up the first adapted sports school outside Spain. The objective is to attend to a very vulnerable group: minors affected by polio or who have been victims of accidents involving anti-personnel mines. In addition, work is being done so that all children and young people of school age have access to primary education, and people with different physical capacities are accompanied, as well as farmers to dignify their work and offer an accessible health service.
