GUANGZHOU, China, Aug. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- On August 2, 2018, the Infinitus Happy Football Training Camp 2018 was successfully held in Guangzhou. The event is one of the highlights of the Infinitus Happy Football Program, jointly founded by Infinitus (China) Company Ltd. and the China Youth Development Foundation (CYDF).
The training camp has been held for three consecutive years and more than 40 students enrolled this year. The camp invited a professional coaching team to provide four days of intensive training and organized friendly matches. The children all received excellent training and made clear progress.
Guo Wenbo, a boy from Heilongjiang (a northern province in China) and participant in the Infinitus Happy Football Program, was a flag bearer in last month's 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. Before he joined the program in 2015, Guo was an introverted and shy child. Through several years of training, he has become a team captain. Moreover, he was selected from more than 20,000 student football players across China to participate in the FIFA World Cup.
Mr. Yang Chunlei, Deputy Secretary-General of CYDF said, "Infinitus Happy Football Program allows more children to grow up happily, and the program is constantly propelled by Infinitus, a socially responsible company."
Mr. Zhang Qian, Director-General of the Si Li Ji Ren Foundation and Media Affairs Director of Infinitus (China) Company Ltd. said, "Through the professional training program and competing in matches at the training camp, students can truly learn the appeal of football and embrace changes in themselves."
Infinitus Happy Football Program serves the purposes of popularizing football, providing training, and organizing matches for primary school students in impoverished rural areas by constructing football fields, donating football facilities, clothes, shoes, and providing football education and training. Launched in 2015, this program has donated more than RMB 12 million (about USD1.75 million) to 100 primary schools from Project Hope in China and benefited tens of thousands of students. It has received awards and honors, including being selected as one of the Top Ten Philanthropy Brands in 2017. It has also been selected as one of the case studies by Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness at Harvard University.
