streetfootballworld is a global NGO that harnesses the power of football to tackle some of the greatest social challenges of our time. The organisation’s work supports an international network of over 120 grassroots organisations that use football as a tool to address deep-rooted community issues, ranging from refugee integration in Ireland to gender equality in Kenya. Collectively, the network empowers more than two million disadvantaged young people per year.
In the framework of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ streetfootballworld will be supporting the implementation of a football festival which will bring together 48 teams from around the world. The festival will demonstrate the impact that football can have in pursuing developmental goals and will be an exhibition of fair play, football passion and cultural diversity. The festival aims to impart values and life skills, both social and practical, on the participants, who were chosen due to their leadership potential and to the contributions they have made in their respective communities. During the festival, participants will have the opportunity to exchange best practices, play football and enjoy a unique intercultural experience together in the context of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™.
