The Favela United Community center: A sustainable and long-term investment in the community
Over the past 10 years Favela United impacted the lives of 50.000+ young people throughout Mozambique and Brasil. By building this Community Center, Favela United can duplicate the impact and include more young people and continue even stronger with giving these children a place to learn, play and grow up in an inclusive and safe way. What will lead to more social change and reducing problems in the community. Daily activities at the FU Center will empower youth and give them the information, training, education and spotlight they deserve. The whole community will benefit from the Clubhouse, besides the children from the community, we also work with street children, orphans and the community mothers.
To achieve our goals and to make the best impact that we can, we closely work together with the community, parents, schools, local partner organizations and the local community government. The strength of our Organisation is that we work with local coaches who train and mentor in their own communities. They play a crucial role in empowering young people since they are closest to the local communities. Favela United can lean on a stable pool of local and international volunteers who contribute with man hours and expertise.
The Favela United Project has been built up for years, so we have gained a lot of experience and knowledge of what exactly is needed in the community. As an Community based organization, we are truly an expert in what we do in the community. Our strength is that we are deeply rooted in the community, built up super grass roots and constantly evaluating and adjusting and addition our (international) expertise in the field of sports for development, specifically football.
