Slum Soccer lets mothers of the boys it trains to kick the ball; Women’s Day event

It may have been symbolic but this Women’s Day gesture brought mirth and smiles to a group of women who reside off the Marina beach in the Pattinapakkam zone.

Slum Soccer is a private body which encourages boys from slums of the city to attend football coaching sessions and take their minds off the darker side of life.

It now hosts a camp on the playground alongside the Marina Loop Road in Pattinapakkam. On Women’s Day ( March 8), it invited the mothers of the kids to the ground and let them dribble and pass the ball.

It was fun time and many women had a go as their wards watched from the sidelines.
