Girls football at La Alianza,Guatemala
Every Friday, the girls at La Alianza take part in football lessons, together with one of their teachers and the coach from the Ministry of Culture and Sports.
Playing football, helps generate changes in their psychological and physical development, helps provide guidelines to improve their behaviour, develops their human relationships within the team and helps them trust and depend on others. All of these attributes help their day to day life and are very beneficial when establishing an independent life and/or family reinsertion.
The football programme has been a huge success for the girls and has been enabled by the contributions and help from Compass Children’s Charity and Football Action.
We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thanks to all at Football Action for their support, guidance and generosity with this programme which has enabled so many girls to grow and develop, we are very grateful.
