The Red Footprint INNOVATION Lab
The latest step in our desire to be at the forefront of the game on and off the playing fields.
This is a business engagement program for smart-thinking businesses to help us identify ground-breaking ideas to take us and especially our local partners forward.
Through this innovation lab we are aiming to help creating breakthrough, out-of-the-box solutions to major challenges of the present and the future.
Who wants to be a Top Scorer of Sustainable Development Goals?
GOALScorers is new community engagement initiative to support the efforts of local communities reaching out SDGs by 2030.
For this we are calling for grassroots, community based football clubs and local non-profit organisations from all over the world to join us.
By taking part in this initiative you can develop your club, your local community and be part of global network.
For dedicated and skilled persons we can also offer voluntary based positions in our organisation.
This program (which is currently under consideration) aims to set up youth sports clubs and/or whole leagues - through soccer/football usually - in refugee camps globally.
We are currently researching possible partners from official refugee NGOs and bodies operating in refugee camps in order to establish our first World United program.
Football Camps & Clinics
In the past we have worked with the Real Madrid Foundation on bringing their fun and professional coaching clinics to disadvantaged kids in Australia.
We used to cooperate with them on providing a half-day coaching clinics for refugee children from overseas living in Brisbane and surrounds.
In future we would like to grow this network of professional football clubs and partner with them in order to give more wider opportunities for disadvantaged children around the world.
The RFC is made up of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar and Bangladesh and provides much needed community support for this much maligned ethnic group.
With funding from the Australian Government and others, we helped to set the club up with equipment, transport and ground fees and a basic sports access facility for use by Rohingya children, especially girls.
With the experience gained through this project, we are willing to consider similar cooperation with other clubs as well.
There's always a lot in development with us!
Currently, we are researching some possibilities for future projects in different corners of the world.
Stay in the loop by following us and as programs come on line you'll be the first to know.
