Recently our founder Alejandro Harding paid a visit to the D.C. United team at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. The team there was very happy to hear what we were doing with the kids here in the Dominican Republic and showed their support by signing a ball for the kids. We would like to extend a special thanks to the coach, Ben Olsen, for making the visit and signing possible!
Happy to have received some new pennies and soccer balls for the kids! They where very excited to see all the new gear! Also practices will no longer be held on Saturdays as the kids have class in the afternoon so changed it to Sunday. Check out some more pictures of the last practice below.
The “Escuelita” was created in 1986 to provide educational opportunities to disadvantaged youth in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. It helps children develop their physical, social, emotional, creative and intellectual abilities during the school year. During the summer, the “Escuelita” usually closes for the summer.
