On the occasion of International Education Day, on Sunday January 24, AS Monaco through its AS Monacoeur (MonacoHeart) program, reaffirmed its action in favour of educational support for children.
What is more important than education?
In a period when social interactions are strongly impacted by restrictions due to the health crisis, it is important to remember the role of school in our society. This is why, on International Education Day, AS Monaco, through its AS Monacoeur program, showed its continued commitment to children. Alongside this symbolic date for young people several actions had been put in place.
Video Clip “Did You Know”
Starting with the publication of a video clip “Did you know?”. The video aims to recall how education is at the heart of AS Monaco’s and the whole community’s social project. And above all, how it is a factor in reducing inequalities, especially for children whose families are more in need.
This is why AS Monacoeur wishes to remind everyone that building our society involves education. And that with work, any child can one day achieve even the wildest dreams of becoming a professional footballer. Like the many young people from the Academy, who obtained their diplomas before starting a professional career.

Education is above all about passing messages: education + passion = success.
And in the midst of a health crisis that is lengthening over time, what better than to remind people of the right actions to adopt, even with the youngest?
It is in this context that the AS Monacoeur program organized a distribution of masks in the club’s colours and with mascot Bouba in the spotlight, in schools in the Principality.
All with the help of ambassador of choice, in the person of Benjamin Lecomte. The Rouge et Blanc goalkeeper, accompanied by the mascot of AS Monaco, took advantage of the day spent with the children to improvise signing sessions.
Barrier gestures successfully spotlighted and reinforced – and all to the delight of “Munegu kids”.
