FC Barcelona Board of Directors member Dídac Lee visited the FCBEscola Dubai's installations at the Dubai British School. Lee met Seif Tawfik, who is the 'partner' responsible for the school in Dubai, which is into its ninth year.
The visit allowed Lee to enjoy various games between some of the 900 children who are learning how to play football there. The director also gave some words of encouragement to the local coaches and had a photo taken with the FCBEscola family in the Arab Emirate.
FCBEscola is the model devised by FC Barcelona which looks to give children an all-encompassing education. It is a global project which is spreading the Barça brand and the club's values. The school in Dubai is one of the longest running ones and is one of two in the Middle East, with another located in Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.
FC Barcelona has 23 schools spread around the world as well as 160 Campus and 50 yearly Clinics with a presence in 50 countries across five continents. This network benefits over 30,000 children a year who participate in the different activities promoted by FCBEscola.
