On November 12, 2022, we organized THE ROOSTER’s biggest event to date in the community of Atandahua, in the area of Guaranda, Ecuador. 120 children and as many school kits, jerseys were distributed, 50 soccer balls were distributed to the 5 participating schools, 5 soccer games were played, and 40 volunteers were present! On the program: a make-up workshop that was a hit, a game of chamboule-tout, a dance and song workshop and of course pizzas and drinks to fill the athletes’ stomachs!
This event took place after weeks of preparation, including levelling the soccer field, talking to teachers and children in the schools, playing environmental awareness games and planting 120 trees in the 5 schools.
Thanks again to El Terreno Guaranda and to my friend Wilson Morales, an Ecuadorian teacher committed to helping the children of his country access to education, for their help in organizing this event!
