The Gift of Soccer Foundation got the chance to send equipment donations to Melamchi, Central Region, Nepal. Deepak Rai and his family were born and raised in this region.Deepak told me stories of growing up and soccer being the one true passion in the children’s lives. The children would wake up before the centralized school started and they would use food (chicken once a week, fruits twice a week!) as bets and play soccer for the bounty! He tells of waking up at 4 AM and breaking a window to get a glimpse of World Cup Soccer playing on the janitors TV. So fortunate to be able to get quality soccer equipment to enhance the lives of the kids in this remote village!
