ABOUT FIFA FOOTBALL FOR HOPE
FIFA believes that football is more than just a game. Through its unique power and universality, football can bring people together, transform lives, and inspire entire communities. It creates powerful opportunities to break down barriers to social development, education and health awareness. This is evidenced by the hundreds of community organisations that are active in delivering social projects through football across the globe.
To harness the game’s huge potential and support existing football-based community projects, FIFA launched the Football for Hope initiative in 2005 to help improve the lives and prospects of young people around the world. It offers funding, equipment, and training to organisations running such projects, and organises events for experts and young leaders so that they can meet, exchange ideas and learn from each other while sharing their experience of working in this field.
Between 2005 and 2015, the support FIFA has provided through Football for Hope has benefited 450 programmes run by 170 non-governmental organisations in 78 countries, serving hundreds of communities and tens of thousands of people throughout the world. HIV/AIDS education, conflict resolution, gender equality, social integration of people with intellectual disabilities, peace building, youth leadership and life skills are just some of the many objectives pursued. ~
