Network Member

Working in Cusco, Peru, where a large proportion of the population consists of economically and socially marginalised young people, Asociación Civil WARA faces an urban community with high rates of unemployment and low rates of high school graduation.

 

Asociación Civil WARA uses street football and the football3 methodology to promote gender equality, talk about health practices and healthy nutrition, and encourage children and young people to stay in school and develop higher self-esteem.

 

Football is also used to foster positive social behaviour, teamwork and better communication. The role of women is always a predominant feature of the games and rules are used to encourage more respect between the sexes and break down a culture of machismo. Parents of participants, and the community at large, are also invited to take part and educate themselves.
