According to the Sun, Sterling is following in the footsteps of Rashford and rapper Stormzy to establish a foundation to help disadvantaged children.
The 25-year-old Manchester City striker wanted to create a fund to pay for continuing education or apprenticeship training for children in poor areas. It is reported that: "He knows how it feels when children grow up with nothing. He really wants to give back to the society. Like many players, he is impressed by Rashford’s work on free meals at school. He decided to do more. He was determined to make changes to help improve the lives of young people."
Sterling grew up in Wembley, north London. He is the father of three children. He was taken to live in the UK after his father was murdered in Jamaica when he was 5 years old. He won acclaim for publicly opposing racism in football and won the British BT Sports Industry Award last year. England coach Gareth Southgate said the player's behavior "has a huge impact on British society." Stormzy decided to donate 10 million pounds to an organization dedicated to combating racial inequality, which Sterling appreciated.
斯特林在伦敦北部的温布利长大。他是三个孩子的父亲。他的父亲5岁时在牙买加被谋杀后，他被带到英国居住。他因公开反对足球中的种族主义而广受赞誉，并于去年获得了英国BT体育产业奖。英格兰教练加雷斯·索斯盖特（Gareth Southgate）表示，球员的行为“对英国社会产生了巨大影响”。 Stormzy决定向致力于消除种族不平等现象的组织捐赠1000万英镑，Sterling对此表示赞赏。
