WELCOME TO FAVELA UNITED

FOOTBALL FOR CHANGE

Favela United inspires and creates change makers by using the transformational power of football to empower youth from marginalised communities.

With Favela United we are committed to a fair future for every young person in Mozambique. By embracing them and including them to join our education and football for development activities, we make sure that every young  person’s potential is fulfilled and talent is unlocked.

 

OUR WORK

 

Favela united works with the most vulnerable children of our society and uses football as a tool to drive social change from youth leadership to gender equility and from youth employability to violence prevention. Our football program unites street children and children coming from different marginalized neighbourhoods. These youngsters often grow up in an unstable environment, with very limited training and development opportunities.
