SNI sponsored the project ‘Love is the Answer Non-Profit Association’ which was established in 2008 with the sole purpose of helping the underprivileged children in Hungary and Romania.
In Hungary, the social and economic structure has been weakened in recent years. Families live in poverty, and unemployment is so high that parents cannot provide their children with the care, tuition and support they need to become useful citizens of society. Because of the circumstances, the children are not motivated to strive for a better life, or to achieve higher goals than their parents did. LITA uses football as a tool to reach the hearts of these less fortunate children to help change their outlook on life.
While playing, they become apart of a greater Team. Currently a total of 145 children have partaken of the program which started in 2009 with just 25 children. 40% or these children are orphans.
Due to the SNI sponsorship they are able to educate the underprivileged children through football that encourages team-working, influences their physical and emotional development, improves their communication skills, and relations with their families. It also affects their behavior in school, giving them equal opportunity and a chance for a better life.
