Mr. Wesley Hedden and 21 volunteers who are active students coming from USA, Cambodia and Vietnam enthusiastically conducted children on football skills.

The children are aged from five to 12 and number of these participants is double comparing to those last year.

Mr. Tran Van Trong, TVU Vice Rector said he was strongly impressed to see the children participating C.L.E.A.T.S as it was useful entertainment, not only encouraged soccer ability but also trained living skills to the children.

A representative of the children’s parents expressed that it was great opportunity for them to do physical exercises and he was so grateful to the Organization Board for holding this wonderful activity.

C.L.E.A.T.S was closed on June 29 at TVU and it was continuing to happen from July 1 to July 11, 2014 in Kandal province, Cambodia.
