Last February 19-21, 2014, FUNDACION REAL MADRID, the Spanish-based foundation of the famous football team, Real Madrid, conducted a two-day training program for the coaches at ANAKK Sta. Cruz, a social sports school for the underprivileged youth. Victor De Arce, Spanish coach and football player conducted the training program which focused not on the enhancement of the football skills of the school children but on the holistic growth and development of its beneficiaries.
The social sports school, funded by FUNDACION MAPFRE in cooperation with FUNDACION REAL MADRID, aims to provide basic healthcare and better education for the “out of school” youth alongside football training, an important source of motivation and values formation.
The awarding ceremony of the ANAKK Sta. Cruz coaches who attended the training program was held on February 21, 2014. FUNDACION MAPFRE representative, Rosa Roncal and CEO and President of MAPFRE Insular, Javier Warleta were present during this event. Certificates of completion were given to the participants and the ceremony ended with a closing speech from Mr. Warleta.
