|Dwight Yorke has added his
voice in support of the United for UNICEF partnership..
During their 2001 Far East tour, Fabien Barthez, Dwight Yorke and
Paul Scholes of Manchester United put on a morning of football skills
coaching for 24 children from a UNICEF-supported Child Friendly
Schools in Bangkok as part of the United for UNICEF partnership..
The children had the chance to practiced their skills --dribbling,
passing, and ball control-- with their favourite football stars.
"What could be better than using football --which breaks down
boundaries of race, culture and status-- to make a real difference
to the children of this world," said Yorke.
Child Friendly Schools project aims to help disadvantaged children
and to tackle issues of drugs, violence, HIV/AIDS and self-esteem.
