New GOALScorer from South Africa
We are happy to announce that Football Without Borders (FWB) from South Africa has just joined our GOALScorers initiative.
FWB is an organisation that uses the power of sport, particularly football, to create a vehicle for social change for disadvantaged communities.
They believe in equiping youth with leadership skills enabling them to tackle the social issues that they face in their communities such as substance abuse, gender inequality, sexual reproductive health and access to education.
FWB's target group is youths aged 10-18 years and they operate in 3 communities in Johannesburg (Hillbrow Inner City and Informal Settlements of Zandspruit and Kromdraai) and are impacting a total 600 youths focusing on four key areas of sport development, education, health education and community development.
