Tacloban City - The Coaches Across Continents training has taught me a lot and I have learned many lessons from the fun and enjoyable activities that we had. They conducted a specially designed football curriculum and it was truly remarkable!
Apart from the technical football skills, the curriculum also covered different topics such as the promotion of health and wellness, equity, conflict prevention, social inclusivity, children’s rights, and vital life skills. Through playing football, we were taught how to communicate better and how to identify, address, and solve problems specific to our communities.
