The clinic was given to 12 foster kids ages 6 and up by European coaches Guy, Erick and Louis of Progress Sports. The kids learned footwork, teamwork, played friendly games against each other but most importantly just had a great time with laughs and smiles.
K1 Britannia volunteers and Oualichi WSA members were present to enjoy the day with the kids.
The initiative by Oualichi Women’s Soccer Association was seen as a great way to give this opportunity to these kids who may have not gotten the chance to participate in their 4th annual summer camp. "Our association remains committed towards further developing and promoting soccer among youths on St. Maarten and most importantly cultivating talent.
Oualichi WSA finds it also important to provide a platform for kids, especially girls and women, from all different backgrounds" said Ms. Danaë Daal, president of the Oualichi WSA.
"K1 Britannia Foundation supports initiatives like this which gives volunteers opportunities to interact with the foster kids but in general encourages them to have the life-changing experience of making a difference in their own unique way, small or big" said Ms. Chiaira Bowers, K1 Britannia Foundation Project Manager.
