Prince Harry visits ACER
June 26th 2014. Coaches Across Continents’ implementing community partner ACER- Association for Support of Children at Risk- had a special guest in Diadema, Sao Paulo. British royal Prince Harry visited ACER after watching England’s World Cup game against Costa Rica. He played soccer with some of the children in the ACER project, children who are directly impacted by the Coaches Across Continents social impact curriculum. They made sure to use the virtually indestructible One World Futbol for the games with the Prince. He also heard some of the children’s emotional stories and backgrounds involving drug abuse and violence.
CAC volunteer Tim Linden is in Sao Paulo with ACER and watched the Prince as he played. Tim has volunteered with CAC a number of times and will be helping to run the 2nd year of our program with ACER in Sao Paulo in just 10 days. Tim can be seen in the picture above in a Harvard jersey in the back left. As a very strong implementing community partner organisation we are looking forward to getting to Sao Paulo and working with ACER to further improve the social outlook for local youth. Even if we did miss Prince Harry by 10 days. If only England lasted longer in the World Cup!
