“Many of these children are growing up in less privileged circumstances where sometimes a game of football could lighten up their lives by teaching them the true meaning of team spirit and fair play,” said Edward J Sizen, Vice President, Engineering and Operations, General Motors Technical Center India.
“The joy that comes from playing football can help lift their spirits and replace despair with hope. Chevrolet’s founding sponsorship of One World Futbol Project is intended to spark a worldwide movement to give children a pathway out of poverty and despair with the benefits that fitness, sport and teamwork can bring – something we call the ‘Power of Play’,” added Sizen.
Chevrolet-branded One World Futbols were delivered in a Chevrolet Enjoy MPV giving 700 children a reason to smile. Chevrolet India’s CSR highlights “Driving a Better Tomorrow.” In the next few weeks, Chevrolet India plans to donate additional footballs in Talegaon and Halol, where its manufacturing plants are located. Earlier on Children’s Day this year, Chevrolet India donated 91 footballs to Sankalp School in Gurgaon, Haryana.
