Summary

We use sport (futsal) to reach street and marginalized children in Jakarta and its surroundings. By using futsal, we build their self confidence, future orientation, life skills, and brought them to access of alternative education, vocational skills, and other self-development opportunity. We use futsal to connect street and marginalized children with people from various background, to bring the value of equality, respect, commitment and child protection

Challenge

There are about 33.400 street children in Indonesia, where 7.600 children lives in Jakarta. Most of the children goes to the street to play and work on the street by begging, scavenging, street singing, or selling product. They go to the street for some reason as they had no alternative, as it is a common activity in their neighborhood, as it is something that runs over generation as how their parents did. Without guidance and access to wider opportunity, they tend to stay on the street

Solution

We conduct sports activity as a tools to reach the street and marginalized children. By doing this, we reduce their time on the street and get connected. Beside using sports for physical activity and healthy behavior, we inject the values of respect, equality, and commitment to them and persuade them to leave street life. We do this by conduct tournament, camp, and jamboree. We also raise their awareness about child protection and offer them with broader opportunity to leave street life.

Long-Term Impact

By the beginning of 2017, we have reach 290 children and expecting to reach 400 children by the end of 2017. We allow them to develop life skills, access to various training, and leaving street life. For those above 17 years old, they will have access to follow training, education, and employable opportunity.
