At the premises of Ahly Sporting Club, UNICEF signed Monday a four-year agreement with the Cairo based club, one of the region’s and Africa’s most popular football clubs, to advocate for the rights of disadvantaged children across Egypt, according to the club's official website.

Ahly and UNICEF strongly believe in the power of sports to bring a positive change to the lives of millions of children.

This agreement comes on the occasion of 30 years since the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

“Ahly has a strong focus on children and young people," Ahly's president Mahmoud El-Khatib was qouted as saying on the club's official website.

"We have tens of millions of fans and followers who absolutely love football. Willing to play an active and positive social role in our society, we are confident that this cooperation will contribute to the well-being of children, especially the most vulnerable in Egypt,” he added.
