“All I have learnt in life about moral or obligations of man, I owe to football.”
Football is more than a sport! Football, as much as we at ACAKORO understand, is characterized by the transmission of social values. Football serves as a life skill at ACAKORO. Each training session aims to teach the children what is important not only on, but especially off the football pitch.
In football, one follows rules – like in life!
In football, one wins and loses – but one should never give up.
In football, success results from team spirit – one achieves more together than alone!
In football, one respects their opponent, their team members and themselves!
In football, one must always give their best – and he/she that always give their best in life, leads a successful life!
In football, fair play is paramount – a good person always behaves fairly!
In football, one needs self-confidence – only with self-confidence can one achieve their life goals!
In football, one must overcome setbacks – but there will always be a second chance!
In football, people should help each other, in order to achieve a common goal!
In football, one has to be punctual!
In football, one should always avoid violence – in life, one should always act non-violently.
In football, one needs passion and enthusiasm – this is the only way to achieve your goals on and off the pitch!
