“In partnership with SHB, coaches from Manchester City’s foundation, City in the Community, welcomed local youngsters from SOS Children’s Villages in Hanoi to the training programme.

Using classroom and on-the-pitch workshops, participants developed their leadership and life building skills, whilst gaining an understanding of practical planning and how football can be used as a tool to positively impact social issues.”

“On the final day of the course leaders put their newly found skills into practice as they were tasked with planning and delivering a football festival for other children from SOS Children’s Villages.”

One Young Leader from SOS Children’s Village commented: “This is the first time I have participated in an international course like this. Being guided by coaches from my favourite football club was so exciting. After four days of learning, I have gained many skills to tackle situations. I will learn more and share with my friends when I go back to my village.”
