He works in rural areas of poorer states to impact change in areas with the most significant need alongside NGO Healing Fields, focusing on improving health. He has also worked with Afghan refugee children hosted in Qatar through Generation Amazing, using football to promote underlying principles of gender equality, communication, leadership, teamwork and inclusivity through its programmes.
