Alex and Renate Esswein with Delta Cultura in Tarrafal

Alex Esswein is a football player of Hertha BSC Berlin and he is one of the professional players who gives 1% of his salary to Common Goal, the movement that uses football for good to bring social change to this world. The trip is organised by The Third Half a partner of Common Goal and Delta Cultura. Common Goal member Alex visits Delta Cultura and the Education Center with his mother for 4 days. Even in pictures and videos it is not possible to show the joy and happiness it brings to the children and youths of the Center to be able to play football with a professional player. Alex plays football with them all day long and if it would be for the children, he would play at night too. While Alex is playing football his mother Renate is spending time with the children in the art room and paints the outside wall of the music room with them. Of course for all the workers and volunteers of Delta Cultura the visit is a big happening as well. Alex has to answer many questions about his life as a player and about the world of football in general. We want to thank everybody – especially in the name of the children of the Center – involved in this wonderful trip.
