Last December, about twenty students watched a documentary called “The Other Kids.” There were different goals behind this cultural experience. The NSHS was hoping to collect enough money to pay for one scholarship. Additionally, the idea was to spread empathy while realizing how fortunate we are. The movie is available on Amazon Prime. It is a documentary that will make you a better person and athlete. The NSHS hopes that you make time in your busy schedule to watch it!
Storyline: Featuring Fernando Torres, Sergio Ramos, Yaya Touré and Vincente Del Bosque, this inspiring story reveals the power of football to change people's lives. Hundreds of millions of kids play football every day. For many of them, football grants are the only way to access education or the ticket to a better future. In some cases, it is their only way to survive. The life of Mubiru Rigan depends on one of these sport grants. Mubiru Rigan, dreams of being the next Fernando Torres and scoring the goal that brings Uganda their first African Cup. But he never had an easy life. When he was 3 years old, his mother abandoned him in the toxic waste dump that surrounds Nelson Mandela's National Football Stadium in Uganda. For a while, Rigan survived by selling scrap metal and stealing, around waste and football, always on the run from local mafias. There, he was discovered by a trainer, who got him a sports grant that allowed him to go back to school, eat every day and play football.
