The Youth FA is grateful to the numerous nurseries who helped to make the Youth FA for Ethiopia campaign a success, where almost 200 footballs, together with other related items, such as air pumps, shin guards and even football kits were collected.
This campaign was the result of discussions that the Association had with Andrew Attard from the Living Waters group who regularly do missionary work in Ethiopia. This initiative was taken to assist kids who love football in the village of Aramo and its surroundings in Ethiopia. These children love the beautiful game but because of their social status do not have the necessary equipment to play.
These grants will make many children in Ethiopia happy as now they will have the opportunity to practice and play football.
It is a great satisfaction for the Association, as well as for the member nurseries that at the end of this calendar year, apart from the various tournaments held during these days, a sense of Football Social Responsibility was maintained, not only during the Istrina campaign a good sum of money was collected for this campaign through various football events but they have expanded their horizons, assisting children who love football in the poor villages of Ethiopia.
