Construction of a new field will take place in Vila Esperanca (Hope Village). The village is located next to a very developed community with lots of soccer fields. However, Vila Esperanca lacks the same luxury. Kids are constantly dodging cars, playing on dirt, and in places covered with trash, so we want to give the youth of Vila Esperanca a safe place to follow their passion for soccer.
We'd also like to give a special thanks to Fabio Silva for donating money and land to make this project a reality. With his help, children will be able to improve and showcase their talents on a proper pitch.
Watch the short video above to find out more about this project and to see kids' reactions to their current playing conditions.
Stay tuned for more updates to come!
