The pair visited the VCF Foundation project at Colonia San Vicente Ferrer youth centre in Burjassot
Mónica Oltra and Layhoon Chan, accompanied by patrons of the VCF Foundation Kim Huat Koh and José Luis Zaragosí, spent time with the 80 residents at the centre -14 of which are part of the Escoles Cor Blanquinegre. They were also given a tour of the facilities and watched the training of the team made up of the 14 members of the school, and handed out footballs signed by the Valencia CF squad.
At the moment there are 12 Escoles Cor Blanquinegre. The initiative was started in October of 2015 with the collaboration of the VCF Footballers Association. Since then, with weekly training with a strong educational profile, the VCF Foundation have aimed to make Valencia CF available to those responsible as a training, social and sporting tool to encourage around 250 young people in their day to day lives -and help them in their personal, educational and community progress.
