Many youths in the periphery areas of Sofia are in real danger of health problems, social exclusion, addictions, criminal acts. They don't have society and family support, information and opportunity to build their own culture in a healthy environment. All football clubs gather taxes for training / games processes and sometimes it is an obstacle. That results in disastrous effects, such as lack of belief in a possible better future, loss of confidence, unwillingness to engage in civil society.


Sport is not only a healthy necessity but it is also a social alternative to preventing many risks - social exclusion, health problems, aggression, lack of tolerance; sport is a social and well-being opportunity. Through our sport-social activities and care we contribute to solving these individual and public problems. To train, play, teach and socialize through the most popular sport here - football (soccer) - this is our gift for the children in disadvantaged areas in Sofia.

Long-Term Impact

Particpants have completely new social life alternative and chances to express themselves and develop their health, personal and football potentials. Considering that sport is the best tool to fight a wide variety of important social problems, the project certainly has the potential to improve participants' health status, social inclusion options, physical culture, mental stability, self-esteem, capabilities for teamwork, anti-discrimination practices, social behaviour, etc.
