Chile

Summary of activities in 2020

The APRENDE JUGANDO  programme of IC CHILE was significantly impacted by the global pandemic. 2020 was a very difficult and complicated year for everyone, but it was especially hard for those poorer groups of the society in Chile, due to different reasons like the lack of access to technology and targeted lockdowns to those  social sectors where the virus hit strongly. 

Our key target at IC CHILE’ APRENDE JUGANDO work is young boys and girls between 9 and 16 years old. Tennis for them is an extra-curricular activity that adds value to their normal school and life standard. Unfortunately covid-19 hit the community severely and kids were not able to attend school nor practice tennis.

We tried to organize on-line activities and videos, but it was not possible because of the lack of hardware and internet at their homes. 

We are sure that a tennis on-line program would have been especially important for mental reasons. We tried to do this but it was not possible. We continued financially supporting our head coach during the year.

We worked in designing the tennis program for 2021, and we are hopeful that we should be able to resume to normal activities during 2021.

We hope year 2021 will bring us health, happiness and a return to normal times.
