In 2019, Fabretto was fortunate to partner with UEFA Foundation to bring together sports and education as a way for children to learn through play. The program enabled 454 children to form 33 soccer teams in San José de Cusmapa, Estelí, Las Sabanas and Ocotal. The children developed socio-emotional skills like trust, leadership, communication, conflict resolution, and, of course, teamwork through participation in regular team practices and regional tournaments.

With the added incentive of a fun sports program, the average retention rate for the primary enrichment program in the centers where the project was implemented rose by almost 7%. Great partnerships truly add value to our education programs!
