Champions of Change Brazil

CHAMPIONS OF CHANGE IN BRAZIL

We’re using football skills and tournaments to train young people to become Champions of Change. Young people learn about gender equality, gender-based violence, harmful stereotypes and how to campaign for change. They then apply their learnings to how they play sport – with key life lessons in every match.

After the training, we support young people to share knowledge with their communities, conduct awareness-raising projects and engage key decision makers. We also run community football tournaments to showcase the young people’s skills and raise awareness of, and support for, the project.

A once-in-a-lifetime experience

We took a group of top fundraisers from Stats Perform and DAZN on an unforgettable project visit to Brazil.

Words can’t express how moving and humbling this visit has been. I'm so proud of the amazing progress of the project, the changes in equality and empowerment, and the sense of community. A highlight was the amazing power, confidence and respect the young people had for each other on the football pitch.

- Emma Rouhani, DAZN
