DOHA: Generation Amazing and CONCACAF are helping to change the lives of under-privileged youth across 41 countries in North and Central America through a joint programme which was launched this summer during a community football event in Houston, Texas.
During the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup, the organisations initiated the programme at a football for development activity for more than 200 children.
CONCACAF’s Director of Development, Jason Roberts, hosted the event, which included remarks from CONCACAF President and FIFA Vice-President, Victor Montagliani, Houston Mayor Pro-Tem Dave Martin, Qatar Football Association General Secretary Mansoor Al Ansari and
Generation Amazing Programmes Director, Nasser Al Khori.
After the opening remarks, Montagliani handed a commemorative co-branded football to Generation Amazing Executive Director, Mushtaq Al Waeli, to mark the official start of the programme.
“The launch of our programme during a football for development activity for youth in Houston this summer was a great reflection on the long-term objectives of our partnership to help improve the lives of thousands of youth with CONCACAF across their member associations,” said Al Khori.
“It was very inspiring to see the positive impact of the activities on the children involved, and we look forward to reaching many more beneficiaries over the coming years across North and Central America.”
