Four youngsters from Tottenham were given the chance to represent the Club at the Street Football World Festival 16 which took place in Lyon, France, this week, bringing together young people from disadvantaged communities across the globe and celebrating football’s power for social change.
Teenagers Aaliya, Ronnell, Jadon and Liam secured their place in the festival after demonstrating a commitment to promoting positive attitudes among their peers having turned their lives around through football.
During the trip, the four participants got involved in a series of sporting, cultural and educational activities with young people from countries including Brazil, Cape Verde, Germany, India, Ireland, Kenya and Lebanon.
One of the highlights included meeting retired French internationals Claude Makelele and Christian Karembeu, where they shared their stories of how football and Tottenham Hotspur Foundation has impacted their lives.
