The power of hockey
The idea? Taking the kids out of their misery regularly. Hockey gives them the chance to have carefree fun and learn something at the same time. Through sports, kids learn that they can accomplish something on their own if they put in the effort.
Through the competitive element of the game they learn to deal with loss and disappointment. These are important lessons you need in life.
A promising future
The program works. Very well! Initially, the program started with eight children, but now almost a hundred young hockey players from the slums are enrolled in the program. Some of them have now been accepted into a good school with a scholarship. “With a chance at education, they have a chance at a better future.”
