The tickets were kindly given to us free from the XLE Group which is the holding group of the Saigon Heat Basketball Team, part of the VBA (Vietnamese Basketball Association). It was a great experience for the children to see a live game, experiencing all the fun, cheering and excitement within a sports complex, as it was the first time for all the children.
At the end of the game, the children were able to meet some of the players, get their autographs and have their photos taken with them, it was such a great opportunity for them. We hope that these opportunities will provide role models and will spark an interest in sports for the children. In addition, one of our girls told us that after the match, she felt so inspired that she has decided to choose basketball to be the selected sport in her school.
