We are particularly proud of the positive impact this Fields of Dreams project has had on over 1500 students at Monte de Guirim, transforming their experience in sports and contributing to remarkable successes, especially in hockey. The school’s U-17 girls’ team, supported by the Foundation, proudly represented Goa at the national level.”
