With the power of street football Favela Street creates a new generation of positive and strong role models for their community in disadvantaged neighbourhoods around the world.
Street football with Favela Street
Favela Street offers a program in which young people can gradually grow into a trainer. They learn how to self-organize street football activities for young people in their neighbourhood and work on their personal development by practicing different life skills. They gain several successful experiences. By sharing these experiences in a group, young people see that it is worthwhile to adopt a positive and constructive attitude. They support each other here.
Favela Street has had a significant impact in 2014; expanding the girls activity in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, winning the Street Child World Cup, offering English lessons at the British School in Rio de Janeiro and creating internship / work at the Cesar Park hotel for its trainers. Besides that two trainers received a pasport for the first time in their life’s. They will travel to the United States and England for an educational exchange program. To shape the international ambitions of Favela Street the project will move in 2015 to Haiti.
