Personal development

Our foundation promotes projects

Our foundation promotes projects that seek to foster the empowerment of children, especially those that safeguard their fundamental rights.

Children are naturally drawn to recreation and play

Children are naturally drawn to recreation and play, which are a vital part of their development. Sport, and football in particular, enables us to teach them about health and well-being, respect for differences, interculturality and the importance of education.

Football is used as a tool

Football is used as a tool for combating the isolation and social disengagement of young people with low self-esteem or who have trouble fitting into the formal education system.

In parts of the world

In parts of the world where girls are marginalised and discriminated against where education is concerned, the foundation supports projects that use football to empower them and encourage them to develop their skills.
