The first thing we did with the street boys was to play football with them every Tuesday afternoon. This is still a regular fixture and has been a great way of getting to know them both the ones in 1moreChild and those still on the street. Afterwards all the boys come back to the house for supper and a shower.
We now have six training sessions a week for our boys and girls. They learn new skills, practice different exercises and prepare for up-coming matches.
We have number of teams from under 9s to under 16s. We play about twice a month against local schools, football clubs and village teams. We always play away as we don’t have a pitch yet, which the children enjoy. The children take the matches very seriously and after each match we have a “Man of the Match” prize.
