    New gear to get the La Chacra kids playing their favorite game

    Day 56

    How We Roll

    It’s no secret that soccer is the world’s favorite sport. And unsurprising that the kids at La Chacra wanted one thing…more of it!

    But, we asked, why don’t you play more now? You have a field right outside your classroom, and there’s plenty of time after school to play.

    Their answer was simple. We need jerseys, balls, and new soccer goals. The goals they had were old, small, and rusty. That’s it? we thought. Now that’s something we could change.

    We got a refresh of soccer balls for the kids, along with brand new jerseys – Real Madrid vs. Barcelona! And then the big kahuna…new soccer goals.

    Those were a bit puzzling to put together – how many ARC teammates and Catholic Sisters does it take to assemble soccer goal?? But with a little elbow grease, the help of our friends from the Global Shapers El Salvador hub, and just a little luck, the pieces were finally in place and the goals ready for play.

    It was a team effort…good practice for all the games ahead!
