Online training for the Foundation's school in Angola

NEWS | 15/01/2021

The project, in collaboration with Manos Unidas, caters for more than 300 children.
The coach-educators from the Real Madrid Foundation's social sports school in Luena (Angola) were given further training in basketball and values, provided online by the Foundation's Training Area due to the inability to travel as a result of the pandemic.
The course's objective is to promote playing basketball and its values among girls in Luena, in collaboration with Manos Unidas, with whom the school is developed, in order to promote sport and contribute to their comprehensive training and the empowerment of women in the country. The school in Luena offers more than 300 children the opportunity to play football and basketball with values, as part of a comprehensive educational project run by Manos Unidas.
More than half a dozen coaches took part in this online course with the aim of refreshing their knowledge on the educational philosophy and methodology of the Real Madrid Foundation, For a REAL Education: Values and Sport. During the sessions they also discussed the introduction of positive values, content planning and task design within sport.
Objective of basketball for girls
The Real Madrid Foundation and Manos Unidas project promotes the practice of both sports, especially basketball among girls, to encourage the uptake of positive universal values that will improve their lives, in an environment where the number of teenage pregnancies is increasing, and education is key to changing that trend.
