Volkswagen Junior World Soccer

From 13th to 16th May the football team of the middle school “CEM Médina Chérif” in Senegal’s southern province Casamance, a HOPE’87 project, participated in the Volkswagen Junior World Masters 2016. This year the championship was held as run up to the European Football Championship in Clairefontaine (France).

The 15 boys, together with their sports coach Moussa Baldé, had a thrilling time with the other 21 football clubs from around the world, making new friends and having a great time matching their strengths in playoffs organized according to the FIFA U13 rules.

This past Monday, the children arrived back in Senegal enthusiastically and grateful for the invaluable experience.

We would like to thank Volkswagen and the “YOU Foundation – Education for Children in Need” for giving the boys the chance to participate in this wonderful event!
