2000 Cameroonian children are the beneficiaries of the partnership that Gruppo Piccini has established with Inter Futura to promote education through sport. It is Wednesday, February 21, 2018 when it is 12 noon sharp that the Piccini Infos team leaves his quarters in Bastos direction: the city of Mbalmayo. Forty minutes later we arrive in the town of this commune of Nyong and So’o 39 Km from Yaounde. When we arrive, the stage is already set. A multitude of children have fun on the vast football field, all dressed in the jersey of Club Inter Milan in Italy. From both ends of the stadium, we quickly see the banner of the sponsor Gruppo Piccini deployed. We are quickly settled and enjoy the show that is served to us by these young amateurs. On one side of the stadium, women’s teams are having fun. On the other, boys do the same. All participate in the mini tournament organized for this purpose. Fields of circumstance trainers give rhythm to the teams who wait patiently on the side. In the field, children aged between 6 and 13 coming from disadvantaged neighbourhoods are explaining themselves around the round ball. The goal is not to recruit or train footballers to become, but to educate these vulnerable children through sport. The project is already spreading to several disadvantaged neighbourhoods in the city of Yaoundé such as Manguier, Mvogada and many others. The NGO Center Sportif Camerounais in collaboration with Inter Campus are leading this project which sees more than 2000 children as beneficiaries. The lease between Gruppo Piccini and Inter Campus runs until 2022.
