Ten-year-old Brooklyn Beckham is learning the importance of giving back.
The oldest son of David and Victoria Beckham joined his mom this week on a visit to Clay County, Kentucky, one of the country’s poorest counties. Entertainment Tonight reports that the pair made the trip with Save the Children, an organization that works in underprivileged communities to help kids succeed in school and learn healthy lifestyles.
“Seeing Save the Children’s innovative programs in action, I know that we can begin to reverse the childhood poverty crisis,” Victoria says. “I’m pleased Brooklyn is learning that by helping and joining other children he can play a role in making his generation the greatest yet.”
Brooklyn played a game of soccer with the kids at Manchester Elementary School, participated in after-school reading programs and helped his mom hand out Adidas shoes and backpacks. The mother-son duo also visited homes in the area to provide nutrition and literacy resources to families.
“What I saw in Clay Country was the hope and promise inherent in every child,” the former Spice Girl reports. “That’s why we have to make sure every single child has a fair and equal start in life.”
Victoria and her footballer hubby David Beckham are also parents to boys Romeo, 7, and Cruz, 4.View Slideshow »»
