The director of the Real Madrid Foundation’s football schools in Japan, Kohei Masuda, visited the socio-sports school in Battambang (Cambodia) and donated some size 4 footballs which are not for sale in the country and are more suitable for younger pupils. There he had a meeting with the Apostolic Prefect of the city, Kike Figaredo S. J., with whom he learned about the social activities carried out in the centre and the facilities and he celebrated this twinning act between the two schools.
The beneficiaries were delighted with this gift and did not miss a moment to start training with their new balls. They then shared a snack and recalled the visit made last season by the students of the schools in Japan. These schools are developed with the support of GFM (Global Football Management) and every year they train more than 600 children in football and values, and since last season they have been collaborating with this socio-sports school in Battambang to ensure its sustainability.
