It is estimated that around half of families living in Porto Alegre in Brazil live in poverty which leads to serious problems with housing, basic sanitation, social rights and difficulties entering the labour market. All of which often results in social exclusion.

 

Through its multiple centres in Porto Alegre, Associação Cristã de Moços do Rio Grande do Sul (ACM) seeks to ensure that everyone, irrespective of their social status, has the necessary opportunities to develop their potential, aim for a better future and become a change agent in their family and community.

 

ACM sees sport as a medium for social development. It organises sports sessions for football3, volleyball and hapkido in underserved communities where opportunities to take part in physical activities are limited. The sport programme aims to drive individual and collective development, social inclusion, promote healthy relations and values such as teamwork, discipline, cooperation, tolerance and solidarity.
