changing the world through football in 2013
"In total, 140 female football players, aged 8 – 18 years, attended the
Women’s Peace Festival
in Kabul. After joyful games at the Open Fun Football Schools, speeches were delivered by senior government officials and other notabilities. The Women’s Peace Festival was organised by 28 female coaches and was broadcast in media all over the world. It spread the message of
peace and friendship through sport
and promoted women’s rights."
Berit Jelsbak Mortensen, CCPA (Kabul, Afghanistan)
"The FFAV Cup, the biggest children's football event in Vietnam and probably all of Asia, kicked off for the first time on June 8, 2013. More than 3,000 children gathered in Hue City to play over 1,000 matches, regardless of gender, heritage or disabilities. Four days of games, cultural exchange and making new friends turned out to be a huge success."
Dominik Kron, Football for All in Vietnam (Hue City, Vietnam)
"As usual, our girls were amazing at representing Chiparamba Breakthrough and Zambia during the 2013 Gothia cup in Sweden. They were the darlings of the crowd and the cameras loved them. The crowd had no choice but to shout and dance along with the Zambian girls as they danced around the stadium, and the team was so happy to be part of the Gothia. It was a huge achievement in our quest and ambition to develop and empower girls through football in our communities."
Malanga Jeff Mposha, Chiparamba Breakthrough Academy (Lusaka, Zambia)
"The opening of the Alexandra Football for Hope Centre was significant in that, in many ways, it represented the culmination for the 20 Centres Project and what we, as streetfootballworld, have been working for! It also gave us an opportunity to show our stakeholders and FIFA that we have achieved much and that these centres are truly making a difference in every community in which they are situated!"
Ian Mills, streetfootballworld South Africa
"It was a great moment receiving the European Citizen's Award from the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, in front of a large audience of award winners, Members of the European Parliament, media and people from the EU administration. It is evidence that the EU believes and supports us in our mission to change the world through football."
Johannes Axster, streetfootballworld
"An MTG player lost her parents. During a discussion on empathy with all the MTG leaders, the girl shared that she could not go to school due to lack of school fees. The MTG girls discussed the situation. They wanted to help their teammate and decided to contribute money. The girls managed to raise 150. The field leader also talked to the head teacher and convinced him that the girl should stay in school. The head teacher accepted her request and the girl was allowed to stay in school."
Cocky van Dam, Moving the Goalposts (Kilifi, Kenya)
"My highlight has been the USAID Soccer Schools girls project – engaging 320 girls from Israel and Palestine in football, leadership and multicultural dialogue".
Tami Hay, Peres Center for Peace (Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Israel)
"Earlier this year, Rumah Cemara held the second edition of the
League of Change
, an annual national street football tournament for people living with HIV/AIDS, drug addicts, and other disadvantaged groups. The moment was not about winning or losing, but rather, embracing others as well as respecting their rights as human beings."
- Adita Taslim, Rumah Cemara (Bandung, Indonesia)
"For me, the highlight of 2013 was the third Beyond Soccer one-day conference that we organised in partnership with Beyond Sport in Philadelphia, USA in September. We have been working really hard on the strategic development of streetfootballworld in North America and the Caribbean, and to hold what our network members told us was our most successful edition of the event yet – and in a country where soccer is not (yet) the number one sport – was a great feeling."
Mike Geddes, streetfootballworld USA
"In the beautiful Caribbean city of Cartagena we met with representatives of all network members in Latin America to start developing a new strategy for the region. It was a very exciting time, not only because we were all amazed by the inspiring work of the two Colombian network members, Tiempo de Juego and Colombianitos, but also because everyone was ready to create a new collaboration in the region, based on joint strategic objectives and the shared spirit of being part of a regional and global network."

Our commitment to the Team Brazil Social Legacy Fund, which we made with our great partner Ashoka, is an opportunity for everybody to get involved in sustainable social impact in Brazil. This is the first social legacy fund of mega events in Brazil and we are very proud to be the ones implementing it."

Winning doesn't matter when there are new friends to be made.
"We went to the beautiful town of Subotica, Serbia, to have our delegation compete in a tournament. It was a great day, new friendships were made, and the score wasn't what mattered. The Football Friends delegation played against friends from Hungary - Subotica is the largest multiethnic city in Serbia and a great place to share ideas of FIFA Football For Hope, streetfootballworld and Football Friends."
Zoran Avramovic, Football Friends (Subotica, Serbia)
"Just three years ago it was a dust bowl, but in September this year I had the chance to watch FC Kick4Life play an A Division match at the Kick4Life Centre in Lesotho. FC Kick4Life is a team of participants and coaches who have progressed through our programmes and now represent the organization at an elite level. The team is fast becoming a vital element of our approach to social change, helping us to raise awareness of key issues and engage communities in our activities."
Steve Fleming, Kick4Life (Lesotho)

"In October, IDYDC was the host to the very special and exciting opening of the new Iringa Football For Hope Centre. There was a football match on the new pitch with mixed gender teams. After speeches were given by FIFA and streetfootballworld members, the event finished off with a prize-giving ceremony for the football teams. Once the prizes were distributed, the pitch was opened up for all the community members to enjoy! Overall, it was a great event."

"In June, world famous sports people, development agencies and football stakeholders helped make Sacred Sports Foundation's first
Sport in Black & White Conference and Youth Forum
a big success. A key element was the work and effort put in by unemployed youth that are part of the Sacred Sports Foundation peer mentoring programme. Some 14 St. Lucian unemployed youth from around the island helped boost SSF capacity and make programmes like Sport in Black & White such a huge success."
Delroy Alexander, Sacred Sport Foundation (St. Lucia)

Clare Shepherd, The Starfinder Foundation (Philadelphia, USA)
"RheinFlanke aims at giving young people a voice and integrating them in social discourses and decisions. In the
, they had the chance to express their opinions and discuss with decision makers from the local society about "My Life. My Future". 200 participants came and showed their feelings openly, expressing their dissatisfaction and fears. 'Why can't I find a vocational training opportunity even if I try really hard?' A question which triggered a lot of discussion. Be yourself, discover your passion and don't give up pursuing your aims – advice that can be given to every young person to help them on their way."

"The Independence day cup tournament was a tournament organized by Search and Groom for youths in Ijora Community and surrounding area to mark Nigeria's 53rd Independence day. This was the highlight for Search and Groom for the year because Ijora is one of the Slum areas in Lagos state where you find a lot of less privileged youths. But even in this situation, they still find a way of speaking out and celebrating the Country's Independence day with so much hope, faith and spirit using their passion for football."
Lovette Ochicha, Search and Groom (Lagos, Nigeria)
"With the aim of using sports to tackle anti-social elements of society, Youth Football Club Rurka Kalan organised “Rurka Sports league 2013”. The event included Kabaddi and Football matches (7-a-side) from September 19 until December 2 at YFC Academy. 600 spectators attended this great event and made it our highlight 2013."

"The road to Rio has been tough, with hills, head winds, wild dogs and have been knocked off my bike so many times i have lost count. However, en route I have had the privilege to visit some amazing projects connected to the streetfootballworld network. Projects in Budapest, Nairobi, Mumabi and many others have represented the great work that is done every day to try and help change peoples lives for the better. The passion and drive by all connected to try and change the world through football is clear to be seen and it's an honour to be a part of the journey."
Hugh Thompson, Tackle Africa
Hugh Thompson departed in July from London, cycling unsupported around the world towards the World Cup in Rio, to raise money for Tackle Africa. On his way, he is visiting as many streetfootballworld network members as possible, playing, coaching and educating.
