Children football unites Ukraine

The NGO "Community Development" together with the "Smart Power" charity fund organized a trip to the east of the country for pupils of 3 Lviv orphanages so that they took part in a football championship.

25 children from Lviv Children's Care Center, Vynnyky boarding school and Lviv boarding school № 2 took part in football championship among boys aged 12-15 years old in Donetsk region. Competitions took place in the city of Kramatorsk. In total, the championship gathered 15 children football teams from different regions of Ukraine.


The main goal of the competition is to make children from different cities, villages and towns of our country, despite different culture, language and traditions, be aware that Ukraine is united and independent state!

"Kramatorsk is one of the first cities that suffered from the Russian troops' attacks. Children saw that the East is reviving, the priorities are changing. Therefore, it is amazing when the hand is on the heart, the head is raised high and everyone, as one, sings the anthem of Ukraine on the whole field. It, was extremely nice, to the ant skin, for such a generation of Ukrainian patriots! ", - says Volodymyr Benio, the head of the group, activist of the NGO "Community Development".


All three Lviv teams were among the best four. According to the results of the championship, pupils of the Vynnyky boarding school won the first place. The second place was acquired by young footballers of Lviv boarding school №2. The third was the team of Lyman, district of Smaragdove (Donetsk), and the team of Lviv Children Care Center was fourth.

Participants of the championship received football attributes and trainers from the General Director of FC "Olimpik". Also, children got cups and watches from the title sponsor of the championship - " Smart Power" charity fund. However, the main thing is not a victory, but participation, because children spent time well and discovered the city of Kramatorsk!

The next similar children meeting will take place in Lviv. Therefore, the NGO "Community Development" believes that we will build a prosperous state of happy residents when we gather all the youth of east and west, north and south together!
