This foundation helps Rotterdam school pupils perform better in language, mathematics and ICT. Playing for Success is making a structured contribution to addressing the deficiencies in their learning and build up their confidence and self-esteem. In this way, sport and education are combined to give back to the city of Rotterdam.
