News from our charity project in India

| Berlinger & Co. AG Berlinger Special AG Berlinger Group

Since 2015, our Christmas present has been to support the football project run by the Indian charitable organisation Salaam Baalak Trust. Its main objective is to give talented Salaam Baalak children the opportunity to put themselves forward as professional footballers or assistant trainers with official football clubs.

Achievements of 2019
The 40 or so boys and 30 girls had the opportunity to take part in various inter-school and NGO football tournaments. A highlight was that 12 boys were able to play football on a grass pitch for the first time in their lives at an NGO football tournament. Andrea Berlinger travelled to India with her daughter Linda in March 2019. The two had the opportunity to meet a young footballer called Sanya. He has been with the Salaam Baalak Trust for eight years and is a professional footballer and an assistant coach at the Indian Football Academy. We are delighted by his incredible success!
