UEFA Foundation for Children’s aim is to safeguard children rights in the area of health, education, access to sport, personal development and integration of minorities.

Football is more than just a game - it’s a vehicle of change, hope and possibility for many children around the world. Football is used to develop important life skills, communication, teamwork and respect, and the opportunity to lead, excel, and gain confidence.
