The projects you'll be helping

Jordan, Bangladesh and Ethiopia

Conflict has caused millions of people to flee their homes in Syria, Myanmar and South Sudan. Many of the children we work with are survivors of recent violence and trauma.

Playing football enables children living in refugee camps in Jordan, Bangladesh and Ethiopia to have fun, learn and enjoy a childhood. Football competitions bring communities together to play, have fun and make friends.


We train football coaches in Tanzania to recognise, prevent and raise awareness of dangerous practices affecting girls. Football training sessions provide a safe space, where boys and girls not only perfect their skills but also learn about the impact of female genital mutilation (FGM), early marriage, child pregnancy and the importance of education.

Football tournaments are often organised to coincide with celebrations for significant days such as International Day of the Girl. These tournaments provide a platform for discussing important issues and bringing the wider community into the conversation.

Brazil and Nicaragua

In Brazil and Nicaragua football is used to educate young people about their rights and develop important life skills, all while playing the beautiful game.

The coaches use the training sessions and tournaments to tackle gender-based violence and harmful stereotypes. Young people are encouraged to campaign for change on and off the pitch.
