Children of War

Thousands of children suffer at the devastating effects of war brought about by ISIS-inspired insurgents, with over 350,000 people displaced and traumatised.

We build five-a-side football pitches to give children a "go to" place, enabling them to heal and transform.

August 2018 - December 2022

  • Need

    Need

    Minimise the dangerous threats that surround the children.

    Solution

    Children will have accessibility to a safe space under the protection of government and non-government departments.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Raise funds to build football cages.


    Activities

    » Acquire land for free
    » Build five-a-side football facilities
    » Create a generation of peacemakers

    What success will look like

    Being able to build the facility, increase participation and numbers of teams and coaches educated. Also being able to minimise the dangerous threats that surround children.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Create a football culture and an identity for the children. Also using the facility to identify talent and assist children and families in obtaining athletic scholarships nationally and internationally.

    Risk

    Socio-political disturbances and natural disasters like earthquakes and typhoons.

    Since we have experienced a very strong typhoon that twisted the metal of the cage, we had designed a typhoon proof facility that is able to withstand strong winds.

    Our structures are overseen by experienced engineers during the build and finalisation.

    Reporting

    Upon implementation, we produce visual documentation and depending on the size of the facility, possible national publicity through social media, print and TV.

    We create a package that will be sent directly to the donors to show how their money was spent efficiently and effectively.
