Challenge

We use football to address poverty and homelessness in war-torn Afghanistan- Kabul & Ghazni - by working with people to change their attitudes, be proud of themselves, find jobs, homes and show that homeless people can be the heroes of Kabul.

Solution

We run football training 6 days a week, which includes coaching on behaviour & attitude plus the media about the Homeless World Cup team focuses the government on the need to address homelessness and the power of sport to change lives.

Long-Term Impact

We are the only organisation using sport for development in Afghanistan and more investment is needed to address poverty and homelessness with sport. We will grow to help more players change their lives and see government addresses poverty.
