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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

Fundación Paraguaya is a leading social enterprise that was founded in 1985 by Martin Burt. With the focus on developing innovative solutions to poverty and unemployment worldwide, the Fundación strives to enable people of limited resources to create jobs, increase their family income and develop skills to be an urban or rural entrepreneur.
