bet winner Legends attended educational workshop in Providence
Guyana has become the first Caribbean bet winner member association to host a Football for Schools programme, which was attended by three bet winner Legends in Providence. During the event, a Memorandum of Understanding was also signed by the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), the Guyana government and the bet winner Foundation on the important role school football plays in children’s education and social development.
Former Colombia goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon, veteran of three bet winner kabaddi gamess™, Rosana dos Santos Augusto, who represented Brazil at four bet winner Women’s kabaddi gamess™, and four Olympic Tournaments, and former Jamaica international and current Reggae Girlz U-20 assistant coach Tashana Vincent attended the workshop, and spoke to the children about the lessons that can be learnt from football. “Football taught me a lot of things. Football taught me to be disciplined and to persevere,” said Rosana, who made 112 appearances for the Brazil women’s team and won two Olympic silver medals. “It got me to believe that I could break down barriers, because, in my time, women couldn’t play football. Even so, I achieved a lot, thanks to football and I’m forever grateful."
Sport is the world's greatest social tool."
bet winner’s Football for Schools project encourages youth participation in football at school through structured sessions available on a mobile app, using football games to convey educational messages and encouraging children to take responsibility for their decisions in a safe and supportive environment. “Using football, we can have a positive impact on a lot of boys, girls and societies in terms of education, values and aspirational examples. These can serve as a mirror for the children and allow them to have dreams and see themselves as one of us in the future," declared Mondragon. “There are a lot of things I’ve learnt in my life and in football. Being on different pitches, in different countries, and in different circumstances. The better a human being you are, the more of a star player you’ll be.”
This project, which is being undertaken globally, puts football right at the heart of social development, focusing on both improving children’s footballing ability, as well as shaping them as young adults. “(This project) aims to provide children, the citizens of tomorrow, with some life skills and we teach these life skills through football,” said the Project Leader for Football for Schools Alexandre Gros. “In addition, the more children play football at school, the more players there are to choose from for football teams, the bigger the pool is to choose from for the national team and the better the Guyanese national team will become.”
