A football coach in India is making tireless efforts to train underprivileged children to compete with the best and in the process gain dignity in life.

Sylvester Peter, who hails from Chennai in South India, is the founder of My Angels Academy, which is meant only for underprivileged children.

Level-playing field

Sylvester has lured these children away from begging and drugs to channelize their energies. “Rich or poor, on the field everybody is equal,” he says.

He says some of the children from the academy have risen to become national level players. Sylvester’s efforts are indeed bringing in positive changes in some “angel’s” lives.
