Favela Street is not standing still! Meanwhile in the Netherlands the coaches of the Favela Street Connect program met football legend Didier Drogba at a special football activity at the Nike HQ in Hilversum. The coaches started in November 2018 with Favela Street Connect (on the 1st photo) and organised several events for their peers. We designed the program in 2017 with the support of the Nike Community Impact team. With the program we educate young refugees to become a football coach and role model.
This time Nike asked the coaches to organise a football activity for their special guest Didier Drogba. They invited students from the Calvijn College in Amsterdam and supervised a football clinic. Thank you Nike for this inspiring and amazing experience for the kids.
