In the battle against poverty, physical education can play a crucial role in helping young people. It gets them off the streets where other activities may cause them harm. It gives them pride in being healthy and fit, which can be a deterrent to the offer of drugs or other poor recreational choices. It gives them the joy of belonging to a team and the fulfilment of additional purpose in their lives.

So, when a company offered sports uniforms, and balls, in the UK, through Global Hand, the NGO Food for the Hungry took them for their development work in Burundi. The pride in the faces of these young people speaks loudly to their delight at this provision. (see main photo below)
