In August 2015, SATUC is hosting a 6-a-side football tournament in Cairo with teams comprised of disadvantaged children from around the world. We believe sport has a unique ability to unite people and is, therefore, a powerful tool in our fight to enact social change. In particular, football, which has spread from the playing fields of England to the Slums of Rio and beyond, has the power to inspire a generation to dream of something better.
The nature of disadvantaged childhoods varies from country to country. The children who will participate may have been orphaned, or have suffered from a childhood mired in poverty, or simply have come from a broken
family. Yet, it is our belief that their past should not define them.
Instead, they should be defined by what they are capable of. This
tournament is an opportunity for these talented children to leave behind whatever challenges they have had to overcome and to show their true nature of themselves. In turn, it is a chance for the world to see them in a different light, not as victims or sufferers but as remarkable young
people who have an extraordinary amount to give.
Thus far, we have teams confirmed from the Philippines, Morocco, Egypt,
Columbia, UK, Honduras, Jordan, and Algeria. In each respective country, we have partnered with a charity or an organisation that provides aid and opportunities to disadvantaged children. We hope the tournament will raise awareness for these projects as well as funds.
The event’s profile is growing by the day and is already being endorsed by a number of celebrity ambassadors, including the official coach for the Honduran team at the tournament, Jorge Luis Pinto, who successfully guided Costa Rica to the Quarter Finals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The
football players, Ahmed Hassan, Shikabala, Ahmed Elmohamady, Ali Al-Habsi, Rabah Madjer, and Nader El-Sayed, are also official ambassadors. As is the world-famous Colombian ballet dancer Fernando Montaño, the eminent actress Ragaa El-Dedawy, the President of Honduras, and the Colombian
