Our Champion for Peace

SAMBO IN VENEZUELA

The Maria Guedez Foundation, as part of its development, proposed in the primary school Hugo Chavez a demonstration of Sambo, collaborating with our champion of peace Laure Fournier. The purpose of the day was to raise children’s awareness about sports and to invite them to train within the Foundation. The Foundation offers the children, in addition to training, a daily meal, tutoring and French lessons. The human and sporting values of respect, sharing, politeness, cohesion and self-control were highlighted in the Foundation and by the speakers at the demonstration day at the Hugo Chavez primary school in Carabobo. The day ended with a  #whitecard picture to promote sport as a vector of social ties, particularly between French and Venezuelan children.
