Gibraltar FA General Secretary, Ivan Robba, today presented Louise Barea, founder of Help Me Learn Africa, with the charity's UEFA Foundation For Children 2020 Award. 

The UEFA Foundation announced their 2020 awards last week, and Help Me Learn Arfica on the back of a being nominated by the Gibraltar FA, were awarded fifty thousand euros.

The award is the first time UEFA has recognised the excpetional work carried out by a Gibraltarian charity, and is a monumental boost to Louise and all at Help Me Learn Africa, as the charity survives off local community fundraising. 

Despite these challenging times, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Louise has huge plans for her charity's work, based on recieving the UEFA award, and can't wait to continue her efforts in Ghana and the Maranatha School which is so close to her heart.
