11 million Brazilians, or roughly 6% of the population, still live in Favelas - poor living conditions with limited access to basic amenities and education.


Founded in 2003, Instituto Fazer Acontecer (IFA) - which translates as “make it happen” - aims to provide young people in the state of Bahia with the chance to participate in society and develop their personal skills via sports activities.


IFA uses sports to promote values such as teamwork, discipline, solidarity, respect and social commitment, and to deal with different issues, such as drug abuse, violence, sexuality and the environment. The organisation also promotes equal participation of boys and girls in all activities.
