BAMBA FOR GOOD RETURNS TO HUACATINCO, PERU IN APRIL 2019



In April 2019, Bamba for Good is teaming up with Futbol for Kids and Foster Soccer for the second time! The purpose of the trip is to make a charitable visit to the rural mountain village of Huacatinco, Peru. Here many of the Bamba Experience porters, cooks and their families live. Watch a video from our visit in 2018.

 




WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP!



In order to make our 2019 visit more fulfilling we would like to kindly ask for your generous contribution. With your help, we can bring the coaches, volunteers and donations to Huacatinco. Donations of any kind are genuinely appreciated and no amount is too small. Together we can make a great impact in the village.

In 2019 our goal is to bring more resources to the Huacatinco primary school children. We will donate soccer balls, backpacks, hats, solar-power lights, shoes, school supplies and medical supplies to the families and children of tourism workers on the Inca Trail. We are also fundraising towards the purchase and installation of a small playground for the kindergarten children. If we exceed our fundraising goals, our hope is to turn an empty field into a soccer pitch for the entire village.

A group of 15 volunteers including soccer coaches, high school students and parents, Bamba partners and their families will travel to Huacatinco. The town is located 3.5 hours from Cuzco at an altitude of 4,200 meters above sea level. The volunteers will partake in a 2-day soccer clinic and charitable visit as a token of our appreciation for the hard work and dedication of our porters and cooks on the Inca Trail and alternative treks to Machu Picchu.

We hope that the children will expand on the soccer skills we imparted in 2018. And that the love for football and healthy competition that we instilled in them in 2018 will continue to grow. The clinics will be held in the mornings from 9:00 – 12:00. Following this, the children will divide into teams representing Peru and Argentina for a school-wide tournament. In 2018 even the parents, observing from the sidelines, carrying babies on their backs and weaving yarn were encouraged to play. It was a heart-warming scene that brought everyone together with smiles and laughter no matter the language or age.

We look forward to having fun on the soccer field with the children again in 2019!
