We work in contexts in which youth violence has become a structural phenomenon. Using our methodologies, participants gain skills for resolving conflicts peacefully, which encourage social reintegration

The most underprivileged areas of large cities currently have a high rate of youth violence which, at the same time, acts as a social division and control, and reinforces inequality.

We promote dialogue and reflection on and off the field to resolve conflicts and drive communities away from violence.

Last season we reached over 7,000 young people who are in these situations.

Goals

Our impact on violence against children and young people

The program promotes empathy, dialogue, conflict resolution, and cooperation among children and youth by ensuring and promoting respect for others and human rights, with acceptance and appreciation of diversity among individuals and social groups, without prejudice based on gender, identity, culture or any other situation.

Using sport and physical activity for the purpose of education, it focuses on offering tools and empowering children and young people, strengthening local capacities, generating participatory spaces, and establishing synergies with different social agents.
