“Well it was very successful, we enjoyed having the children here and they enjoyed themselves from Monday and until today the children were very happy, they got their certificates today, it was very good, everyone learned a little bit more about football, about basketball and or course it was nice for us to have them around and let the parents have a little bit of more time by themselves.”

“Well I certainly want to congratulate the boys and girls that were out here since Monday evening with the bad weather and that they are the ones that make this a success, they are the ones that makes all the efforts that is worth it and I really want to thank them and also to their parents, who allow their children to come here for half day for the past week so I want to thank them for their full participation but also to the coordinators, the participants, the trainers that have played a very crucial role in making this a success because we can bring the kids here but if they have nothing to do then w are going to be wasting their time so we have these young men and young women who out here organizing spending time with these kids all they trying to teach them some sport be it volleyball, football so am very, very grateful to the work that they have done and looking forward for next year, the kids are looking forward for next year, so I want to thank everybody, all the sponsors, all those that gave us some small donations and everything to make this a reality so a big thank you to everybody.”
