Football for Hope Adidas Exchange Programme in Vietnam, an international workshop on football and life skills, began in Hue city on November 24.

Fifty-four members from 16 non-government organisations in Asia and Australia are participating in the workshop, which ends on November 29.

The workshop, being hosted by the Football for All in Vietnam (FFAV), will include two seminars on ‘Development through football in schools' and a coaching seminar on the ‘widely recognised Coerver Coaching method'.

The programme provides organisations an opportunity to exchange and develop expertise and skills that are vital for an effective programme delivery and their overall operations.

FFAV rises above cultural norms to create non-competitive, inclusive football and life skills programmes for children – aged between six and 15 – from disadvantaged communities, including orphans, ethnic minorities and street children, with training sessions and tournaments.-VNA
