Here is a bit of an update from one of our partners in Argentina:

“In Córdoba we are teaching soccer classes to children and youths on a football field that used to be a garbage pit. The field is located in one of the toughest areas in Córdoba characterised by high levels of crime and consumption of drugs.

We meet 4 times a week with different groups. At the beginning of each class we teach values and lifeskills. Although it sometimes looks like the lessons aren’t really ‘sinking’ and producing changes in their behaviour we are happy to see some fruits.

I remember B for exemple who had been behaving terribly the other day. He even took off with one of our soccer balls. At the start of the next class he inmediately wanted to talk to me in private and asked for forgiveness. It struck me that he took the initiative to talk to me. 

Thanks for the soccer balls!! They are a huge blessing.”
