ALI AL HABSI FULFILS LAST YEAR’S EARTH HOUR PLEDGE

MUSCAT: Oman’s national team goal-keeper Ali al Habsi recently held a goal-keeping session at Al Khoudh Football Field as part of the ‘I Will If You Will’ Earth Hour campaign made last year.

The initiative was started to encourage people to switch off unnecessary lights during Earth Hour and to that end, Habsi had pledged that if 2,500 people joined the cause online he would coach a free goal-keeping lesson for children. After receiving more than 2,600 pledges online, 25 lucky children aged between 6-12 years were chosen to participate with the goal-keeper; who eagerly shared his wealth of knowledge.
