The program mainly encompasses soccer training, in addition to creative drama, chess, environmental awareness, first-aid, nutrition, and futsal programs. There will be a representative and an assistant to the coordinators in each village, thanks to the cooperation of the Community Volunteers Foundation (TOG).
