The leisure football game, led by Manchester City coaches, is part of the Hala Mondial initiative, a program for people of determination
Abu Dhabi, UAE: NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD), in partnership with the SEDRA Foundation (Services for Educational Development, Research and Awareness for Inclusion), hosted the Hala Mondial leisure football game, led by Manchester City coaches, for young people of determination on November 27 at Zayed Sports City. Over 16 participants and 12 volunteers, along with families and friends, participated in the event and immersed themselves in the excitement of FIFA World Cup 2022.
In light of the upcoming International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD), and as part of the effort to continue the legacy initiated by the Special Olympics 2019 to create more inclusive environments, Hala Mondial is the first game-based program designed for young people of determination and to be centered around the theme of the World Cup in the UAE.
Hala Mondial is a six-week program available in both English and Arabic, engaging people of determination in a mixture of online and in-person sessions with hands-on activities, game-based learning, and fitness activities.
