What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
This project will provide travel funding to enable a national team from Malawi to participate in the Paris 2011 Homeless World Cup from 21-28 August.
How will this project solve this problem?
Your contribution to the Homeless World Cup will make an enormous difference for the players of this all-female team from Paraguay. Supporting them would include accommodation and documentation to and from the Paris 2011 Homeless World Cup. The tournament has a long term impact on participants – it gives them a feeling of inclusion and empowerment. It allows them not only to experience a new country, but also allows them to connect and interact with homeless people from around the world.
