Hope Cup Tournament
Story: Street kids ion HCMC have nowhere to play any form of sport, in fact, they don't really care about sport - just survival. 5gio sang has created an innovative and exciting program to encourage street kids to stay in shelters - through sport, and more specifically soccer.
Problem: Boys who have no homes, have no families, and have no employment, are most likely to fall to the clutches of criminals who will encourage them to engage in petty crime, prostitution and drug abuse.
Solution: The Hope Cup provides an avenue for young boys who live in shelters to engage in sport - soccer. Training regularly to hone their skills for the annual Hope Cup Tournament, these boys learn the life-skills of discipline, team play, respect, and self esteem through the challenge of winning the tournament. This project has developed street kids, in to young men with ambition and hope. Photos of the Hope Cup tournament will be posted after it has been run in October 2014.
