Summary

"Football for all" creates avenues for healthy living and active lifestyles. This preventative health approach will help to improve the health status of the communities. It provides sporting activities as an alternative to anti-social behaviour. Football for all will target groups and areas, where there is a recurring pattern of crime and violence to preach peace in the name of football.
