The motorcade presses on through the narrow streets, while the personal assistants to the foreign dignitaries check their timetables. The neighbourhood’s been cleared of all the unwanted elements that could disturb the photo opportunities for the press photographers that have been selected for today. The small convoy comes to a stop and the prime ministers and business representatives enter a small courtyard where teenagers in matching tracksuits wait to welcome them. There’s a flurry of clicking cameras and flashbulbs as one of the NGO executives plays a short game with the top talents of the favela. They graciously allow him to weave through their defences and score a triple pointer. Several of the dignitaries, well maintained women in skirts and blazers, applaud the initiative. Then the team lines up to shake hands with the politicians. They hand every dignitary a fane with their team logo and show shy smiles for the press releases, until the tour operator signals that it’s time to go. As the motorcade picks up speed, en route to another local initiative, the young players take positions just like any other day. It’s game on, the checks safely in the pockets of the project manager.
