The event was organised in collaboration with Inusports and saw 300 youngsters receive scholarships from the local organisers.
The Real Madrid Foundation, in collaboration with Inusports, celebrated a football and values clinic for the first time in the Democratic Republic of Congo, held in the city of Kinshasa. The social nature of this clinic was emphasized, which, thanks to the collaboration of the local organizers Growafrica and the First Lady's Denise Nyakeru Tshisekedi Foundation, financed 100% of the scholarships so that 300 young people from 15 to 17 years old, regardless of their social status, had the opportunity to experience a day of training in values through sport offered by the Real Madrid Foundation.
For two weeks, 300 girls and boys have been able to enjoy the Real Madrid Foundation's special methodology and learn by practising their favourite sport. The inauguration was attended by the Spanish ambassador to the Democratic Republic of Congo, the director of the First Lady's Cabinet and the delegate of the Ministry of Sports to demonstrate their commitment to the project.
Future projects
Thanks to the collaboration with Inusports, with whom clinics have successfully been developed in Russia and the United States, there are plans to celebrate more events of this kind and to turn it into a regular programme that can take place several times a year.
