Just 1 Goal: Well Done Thierry Henry, Kanu, et all

Focused on 1Goal

Focused on 1Goal

From time-to-time we will explore the power of The Beautiful Game to make a difference around the world.

We missed the launch of this yesterday, but it’s worth sharing today.

Thierry Henry, Michael Owen, and John Pantsil among other international supporters have joined up to begin a support campaign to, in general, bring education to children in Africa, entitled: The 1Goal Initiative.

Having a sister who works in Chad in central Africa, TSG thinks it’s great to see the focus that will be coming to the continent due to the World Cup next year. This campaign is coordinated for that moment of high exposure.

The campaign will focus on effecting positive social change and specifically improving education, heath services, and social services for the disadvantaged on a geographic basis.

Federico Addiechi, head of corporate social responsibility for FIFA, declared, “The popularity of the FIFA World Cup will enable a wide audience to be made aware of the challenges surrounding education worldwide and to pledge their support to 1 Goal and in doing so helping all kids get the education they deserve.” (AP)

We will provide details as we hear of them.

If you feel so inclined, and TSG did, simply add your name to the petition here. There is no monetary requirement.

Stay tuned for some news here from TSG as well.

More on Thierry Henry.
