Soccer Schools Coach Visits Arsenal-Funded Football Project In Iraq

21/03/2016

Arsenal Soccer Schools coach Drew Tyler traveled to Iraq last week to visit a football project funded by The Arsenal Foundation, in partnership with Save the Children.

The Arsenal Foundation has funded two artificial football pitches in Iraq for children and families who have been forced to leave their homes.

Drew headed out to help create a football program that will give children the chance to learn to ‘Play the Arsenal Way’.

By combining Save the Children’s experience of delivering life-changing programmes with Arsenal’s football expertise, this ground-breaking project has reached more than 2,500 children across the two camps so far.

The Arsenal Foundation has been supporting Save the Children as their global partner since 2011 and has raised more than £1.5million to support the charity’s life-saving work.
