New project: Favela Street Curaçao

Our mission to boost young people’s confidence and develop their life skills continues. The program is set to touch down on Curaçao, in the neighbourhood Montaña, as part of the government’s ‘urgentieplan’ in 2019 and 2020.

We are currently seeking potential participants who want to become football trainers for their neighborhood. With a special focus on young women. They will learn how to organize football activities for children and other young people. In return, they become role models within the community.

Rocky has been giving football clinics and presentations at schools and football clubs in different neighborhoods. Meeting with key figures from the island who work with young people that cope with social exclusion. Just by going to these places, she has already spotted a lot of talent amongst the youth and selected 1 female coach from Seru Papaya.
