MCB Football Academy
The MCB Football Academy promotes an environment conducive to child development based on sport and education. As children are the adults of tomorrow it is important to guide them from an early age to help them achieve their ambitions. Through the MCB Football Academy, children benefit physically, socially and emotionally and learn the timeless qualities of leadership, responsibility, perseverance and teamwork.
Accompagnement des Parents
Parents play an important role in the education of their children. Their involvement and encouragement positively impacts their child's physical, mental and emotional well-being. Families are empowered to embrace their responsibilities as parents and citizens.
The MCB Football Academy training sessions and the Special Remedial Works Programme have drawn attention to issues which have a tremendous impact on the social and emotional wellbeing of the children,namely, violent & aggressive behaviour; psychosomatic behaviour; emotional instability; teachers unable to identify and deal with emotional needs of students in the classroom; and parents unable to deal with emotional needs of their children. In this context, a clinical psychologist attends to children and parents in need of psychological assistance.
Children aged between 6 and 10 years from the regions of St Hilaire , Poste de Flacq, Camp Levieux, Pailles , Patate Theophile ( Rodrigues) and Petite Butte (Rodrigues) train every Saturday under the supervision of qualified trainers from the Mauritius Football Association (MFA). Football is an effective tool against ignorance, intolerance and indifference. It provides values such as discipline, integrity, teamwork, trust and respect among others.
Through the different mediums of education, individuals are taught their rights, duties and how to actively participate in society. All children must attend school to become a member of the Football Academy. An awareness exercise is conducted in conjunction with parents to highlight the need for children to be educated. As such, the MCB Forward Foundation monitors the children’s education in partnership with the institutions which they attend.
