So let us tell you how the soccer camp went - as you may know we organised 2 soccer camps in July, we started out slow with 4 kids from Alenah’s Home Orphanage, aged  5 and 8. As this was the first time we organised the camp we faced some challenges , especially the weather was not always on our side during our first camp, but the kids were thrilled, the soccer coaches Sam, Edward and Thomas excellent,  and an enthusiastic MH volunteer team was in place



   

We  quickly realized that many things don’t truly matter, as long as the children were enjoying themselves. When we looked at their joyful faces while playing soccer or goofing around with the with the coaches and our volunteers, we knew why we were there.



Joy when shooting a goal!!!!

At the end every child received a medal for „Best Player“ and a personal certificate. 


Graduation of Alenah’s Soccer Camp – everyone is the best player, what a feeling!

In our second camp we had in the end 28 children of Guang Ai School. Guang Ai which is home to more than 100 orphans, street children or children of migrant workers. 


Warm up on the first day, arms and excitement in the air

On the last day the coaches joined the game!

The children got all excited and with pride they carefully looked at their prize - the smile wide on their faces
