Destitute Children Event

One day in December for destitute kids © Tom Rübenach

Once a year, in December, AYiERA iNiTiATiVE organizes the “Destitute Children Event”. 

Giving hope to the children

Just imagine…

During this event a soccer tournament for under 12 and under 14 years children is normally held and the outstanding players get awarded. We also award the children for outstanding performances in art, poetry, acting e.t.c. as a way of motivating them and to encourage them to continue doing what they are good at as well as to teach them healthy competition.

During the event AYiERA iNiTiATiVE normally invites a speaker to give a motivational speech to the children. This motivational speaker must be someone who was formerly living in slum and against all odds he/she became successful in life.
