Football activities can be used to bring communities back together, contributing to the re-building of trust, decrease crime and violence free for reconciliation and re-integration within communities. Football activities for Ebola survivors or those affected by the impacts of Ebola.

Solution

Football has a natural place in education, whether the approach used is formal, non-formal or informal. In schools, football and physical education activity is a key component of a quality education and can be used to promote schooling among young people. Outside the classroom, sport is a "school for life", teaching basic values and life skills important for holistic development. The targets in this case are the kids, teenagers and the youths.
