“Being a part of the Favela United project changed my life. I used to be very shy and didn’t have a lot of self confidence. Now I'm coaching the next generation young girls and boys in the community and I also became a referee in the official youth football competition. I feel strong, confident and respected when I walk through the community, it makes me happy and proud”. Joaquina

When all eyes were on Russia for the FIFA World Cup 2018 we did not forget about the other side of the world, where youth still fights againstsocial exclusion a nd poverty. The World Cup for social change Following the footsteps of one of the World’s best footballers of all time, Mozambique’s legendary Eusébio da Silva. Last summer over 500 marginalized children throughout Mozambique’s poorest communities tasted the sweet feeling of participating in a World Cup and experienced what it feels like to be a real football star. During 30 days, boys and girls from 16 different communities including street children came together on the pitch to play and celebrate the beautiful game of football.
