Transport will contribute more than 5 million pesos per year to improve the infrastructure of children’s soccer clubs

The Ministry of Transport and Public Works (MTOP) and the National Children’s Soccer Organization (ONFI) signed a cooperation agreement to carry out infrastructure works in different children’s soccer clubs. This portfolio will contribute 5.5 million pesos for the purchase of materials, while ONFI will select and prioritize the demands of institutions throughout the country.

The agreement was signed on Monday 15, at the ministry’s headquarters, with the presence of its highest authority, José Luis Falero; the undersecretary, Juan José Olaizola; the National Secretary of Sport, Sebastián Bauzá; the Undersecretary of Sport, Pablo Ferrari, and the President of ONFI, Eduardo Mosegui, together with authorities from the organization.

In his speech, Falero highlighted the importance of intervening and collaborating with institutions throughout Uruguay through the Social Agreements Program, and pointed out that the current administration doubled the allocated budget for this.

The agreements prioritize institutions that work in the care of people with disabilities and older adults, and then the children’s soccer clubs. These sports institutions are characterized by a great social commitment to the community and a strong imprint of containment towards families, he indicated. He added that the agreement signed with ONFI will speed up and make effective the realization of small infrastructure works in sports clubs.

In this case, the ministry will contribute 5.5 million pesos to buy materials, and will assume the supervision of the works, while the purchase and distribution of the materials will be in charge of ONFI, and the workforce, in charge of beneficiary institutions. In addition, ONFI will select and prioritize the demands of the clubs of the 19 departments in an equitable manner and will be responsible for reporting to the ministry on an annual basis. “This demonstrates a State that articulates, complements itself and is present in small, medium and large works”, he concluded.

For his part, Bauzá highlighted the articulation of public policies as essential to improve infrastructure and said that this has repercussions on positive changes for the entire society. In addition, he highlighted the work carried out by ONFI to learn from proximity the needs and demands of sports institutions and collaborate with them.

In his turn, Mosegui pointed out that the agreement formalizes actions implemented in practice and that imply the work articulated with State institutions.
