Andrew Ference Gets Involved

from the Boston Herald,

More recently, Ference has also gotten involved in the Right To Play program, which brings sports to disadvantaged parts of the world such as Africa, Palestine and Asia. On June 28, Ference and fellow volunteer, Pittsburgh Penguins forward Georges Laraque, will head to Tanzania to establish athletic programs.
“Where I’ll be going to in Tanzania, we’ll be working with kids who’ve orphaned by AIDS, former child soldiers or refugees, kids who really haven’t had a childhood and have lived five lifetimes in the span of 10 years,” Ference said. “We’re setting up programs where they can have sports, whether it’s through school or community teams. Where I’m going, a lot of the teams the kids can play on will be in the schools so it’s kind of a double-edged sword where you get the kids playing and having fun and interacting with other children and also getting to school because that’s where the sports are. Immunization is also done through sports.
