streetfootballworld is a global network of 80+ local initiatives using soccer to drive social change and development among less advantaged children and youth.
Millions of disadvantaged and socially marginalised young people lack the opportunities to realise their full potential and build a better future. Lack of quality education, involvement in conflict and the risk of teenage pregnancy and HIV/AIDS are a reality in their everyday lives. Civil society organizations (CSOs) working in local communities are in the best position to identify and address the socio-economic challenges faced by these young people. However most of these organizations lack the appropriate knowledge and access to networks which would empower them to efficiently implement their solutions in a scalable and sustainable manner.
By supporting the work of its member organizations streetfootballworld facilitates outreach to over 1.5m young people globally every year, helping to reduce socio-economic disparities and overcome the various forms of discrimination through the respective empowerment initiatives.
