Summary

1 in 4 girls in the Philippines is born into intergenerational poverty. In Leyte and Samar, where FundLife has been working since 2014, this skyrockets to 1 in every 2. Because of poverty, girls are often forced to give up their education and chance for a better life. FFLA Girls Win is changing this through a community-led, education programme through purposeful-play, to protect, educate and, empower girls from marginalized communities through the universal power of football!

Challenge

Despite a growing economy, the Philippines has the highest rate of poverty and inequality across Asia. The country also has one of the highest rates of sex trafficking and forced prostitution for girls who live in poverty. For girls who are born into poverty, they do not have access to quality education as schools are often underfunded and classroom sizes are often up to 100 students. Because of this, many girls do not finish their education and instead need to provide for families.

Solution

The project helps to break the cycle of poverty through four simple steps; Step 1 - PLAY - Access to regular play where they learn about their basic rights and how to avoid becoming victims of sex trafficking Step 2- EDUCATION - Teaming up with Education to ensure girls receive key social support and can stay in school 3 - EMPOWERMENT - Working with community role models, who can support girls to stay in school and to believe in their dreams 4 - Connecting FFLA graduates with dignified work

Long-Term Impact

FFLA provides long term sustainable development by locally supporting marginalised and vulnerable girls commit to their education, follow their dreams and ultimately escape poverty. The model has been recognized for its effective approach, winning awards for both social impact and sporting innovation. F4LA is entirely locally owned and is easily replicated in any community. With your support, we can continue this vital work for children in the Philippines and beyond.
