Generation Amazing will also continue its collaboration with the Qatar Children's Museum on GA4Good, providing young audiences with sports-themed arts and crafts sessions and live physical activities throughout the summer holidays.
Argentina football star Javier Mascherano will be the special guest on Thursday's GA4Good Instagram Live At 9 PM Doha time. The current Estudiantes player will talk about the discipline and drive which has helped him win a host of major honours during his glittering football career. After making his name in the English Premier League with West Ham United and Liverpool, Mascherano joined Spanish giants Barcelona, where he won five La Liga championships and two UEFA Champions League titles. He also won 147 caps for Argentina and helped his nation reach the 2014 FIFA World Cup final, where they lost 1-0 to Germany. Mascherano is the latest star to appear on GA4good since the programme launched its online series. Previous guests were Xavi Hernandez, Samuel Eto'o, Cafu, Tim Cahill and others. All the star chats can be viewed on the programme's Instagram page here.
Generation Amazing Programmes Director, Nasser Al Khori, said:
"Javier Mascherano is such a prominent figure in football who, in addition to being a dominant player for club and country, has done some tremendous and admirable charitable work with NGOs off the pitch as well. This kind of commitment to the community is a crucial part of what Generation Amazing does and I am sure that both our youth participants and general audiences can take so much from his incredible experience. We are thrilled about hosting him this week to explore these topics and more."
"It will also be interesting for youth to hear about the important work that Pierre van Hooijdonk has been doing as a WorldCoaches ambassador. Again, this is a cause close to Generation Amazing. He does a brilliant job of reaching youth through football coaching, so we are very excited about the line-up."
A Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) social and legacy programme, Generation Amazing has reached 500,000 beneficiaries worldwide and aims to positively impact 1 million people via its football for development training sessions by 2022.
