In many countries, work is being done to transform communities with programmes based on football. Streetfootballworld is a worldwide network that brings together companies, social entrepreneurs, international organizations and governments to develop programmes for social change through the use of football.
In Latin America, Streetfootballworld has allied with FIFA (International Federation of Association Football) and the Inter-American Development Bank to promote the Football for Hope movement, which offers financial support to social organizations to carry out quality local projects, especially those linked to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. The main beneficiaries, as well as the driver, of the Football for Hope movement are organizations that use football as a tool for social development in the areas of health promotion, peace, children’s rights, education, social integration, the environment and the fight against discrimination.
