This project uses sports as a tool for development and aims to provide not just technical skills, but support the holistic development of children through sports activities.
Sports initiative is a year-round sports for development programme, which is being implemented in 12 schools and communities in 4 districts. The 2 selected local youth leaders have been trained to lead the programme at the community level where they run weekly sports sessions based on issues identified by the children in their communities. The programme aims to reduce dropout rates in the schools, to prevent child from being trafficking, indulging in unsafe migration and any other form of child abuse children may face once they drop out of school. It also focuses on bringing equality among the community regardless of gender, race and economic background of the family.
The yearly sports festival and tournaments focuses on wider awareness raising among children, parents, communities and teachers to understand the importance of education. This is done through a unique training partnership with Coaches across continents, street football world and slum soccer India. Through the project, a football pitch has also been built in one community.
To improve the school regularity and decrease the dropout rates, to tackle issues like gender inequity by empowering girls and change the stereotypical behavior of men in the community and develop local youth as role models to advocate for the safety of children
