Thursday, March 29, 2018

Kuala Lumpur: Children from the Rohingya Education Centre based in Klang were invited to the AFC House for a friendly match with the staff, carried out by the Asian Football Confederation and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) partnership on Tuesday. 

The friendly is part of the character education carried out under Phase 1 of the AFC-UNHCR Programme, that also comprises competitions, with the aim offering learning experience for the children to play with an external team in a match officiated by professional referees.

The children’s football skills and behaviour were observed throughout the match, to identify if the children had absorbed the knowledge and lessons taught in the programme. 

Furthermore, it also served as an opportunity for the children to visit the city.
