More than 30 kids from across the district of Mae Sot in western Thailand have enjoyed the opportunity to take part in the latest Global Alms Touch Football Development camp.
Run by ASEAN Rugby League Football committee member and volunteer, Jason Hatton, plus Lun Ngai of Global Alms, the two-day mentoring program focused on helping educate youth in the region the values of teamwork and resilience through Touch Football.
Part of the Global Alms ‘Yes She Matters’ and ‘Yes He Matters’ programs, the camp had a strong emphasis on providing mental health support for young people attending whilst also teaching them new skills in a fun and safe environment.
Winners of the ‘Player of the Day’ awards were Naw Soe Soe Myit on the opening day, whilst Naw Shwe Zin Pyo and Saw Nay Ber Blu shared the honours on day two.
The Development camp was held at Tesaban Oval in Mae Sot just near the Thailand – Burma border.
