Qatar’s Generation Amazing Program Introduced to Belize

The Generation Amazing Foundation is establishing its grassroots football program in Belize. The foundation is described as a legacy movement from the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. An official ceremony was held in Belmopan this morning to celebrate the introduction of the program in more than two dozen primary schools. Here is more from that event courtesy of TNC.

“We started at the very early stages of the bid for the World Cup. Countries put together a bid and there is a legacy component that you have to put together for FIFA. Generation Amazing was one of the projects that we presented and we continued, regardless of the bid, Generation Amazing was created as a foundation and we use sports, mainly football as a tool for social development and we are aligned with the UN’s sustainable development goals and we really believe that people have the power to come together and unite and to kind of embed different values and create more coherent societies and that is what we have been doing over the last fourteen years. We have been able to impact the lives of one millions boys and girls over seventy-five countries around the world.”

“What we have done here is introduce it to the primary school kids, to a number of primary schools, twenty-five and we have been begging for more. I know Jennifer committed she will throw in another ten. The legacy will go on because the ministry for Education has seen the value with what we are doing and when they realigned their curriculum they made physical education a priority. I believe with the meeting we had, they had five major educational components and one is physical education.”
