On September 2013, FIFA’s World Cup tour started to visit 88 countries in 267 days. On February, the tour stopped in Guatemala. Thanks to the generous donation of the 1850 channel, 16 young Safe Passage students had the opportunity to attend the showcase event of the World Cup held in Parque de la Industria in Guatemala City. The attendees are members of weekend Soccer Club at Safe Passage. They were very excited to have the opportunity to attend this activity. PE teacher, Maynor Koxaj, accompanied them.
The beneficiaries were able to see and take pictures with the display of the soccer balls used in the past FIFA’s World Cups. Also, there was an exhibition of the giant ball which will be used in the Soccer World Cup BRAZIL 2014.
At the end of the event, attendees had to make a line to see the actual World Cup. The waiting lasted over three hours, meanwhile the kids could see dancing shows and sport activities. After hours of waiting the boys were in front of the World Cup! They took many pictures to remember the moment. For them, the long wait was worth it, because they will have an unforgettable memory of being with their favorite sport’s World Cup.
Thanks to 1850 Channel and the people who made reality the dream of these 16 members of Safe Passage. This was a unique and rewarding experience for them.
