Students from our Mydel soccer academy are now returning from their boarding schools for holidays. To kick off their holidays we organized a football match against Kampala health at the Mengo primary school. This match was dedicated to Lenny, our German volunteer, who is leaving us after one year. In appreciation of his passionate work for the Mydel soccer cubs, we honoured him by leading the team as a captain for this match. The match ended 4:2 and the team showed great team spirit and enjoyed the match despite rainy weather.
The leadership team of our soccer academy is currently also in the early stages of organizing a nationwide football tournament, which will be hosted by the Mydel Soccer Cubs around new years. We are inviting teams and scouts from all over the country and therefore living the vision of Mydel, by giving vulnerable children the platform to demonstrate their talent and find a way out of harsh living conditions in pursuing what they are passionate about.
