Team Brazil Social Legacy Fund

Commitment by

streetfootballworld

In 2013, streetfootballworld, along with Ashoka, committed to create the Team Brazil Social Legacy Fund, a unique funding mechanism that leverages the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympics in Brazil that will directly impact over 25,000 youth and children in Brazil. This fund will pool financial resources from partners all over the world to provide long-term sustainable support for sport-based development projects in Brazil. The overall aim of the fund is to be an inclusive investment opportunity for actors across the globe to contribute to a positive social legacy of the mega events in Brazil, and empower young, disadvantaged Brazilians with the skills necessary to create a better future for themselves and their communities. At the heart of the Team Brazil Fund's project portfolio is the promotion of the 'football3' methodology. This methodology has been proven to promote dialogue, responsibility, conflict resolution, teamwork and gender equality but is largely unknown in Brazil, where football is primarily seen as a competitive sport and is largely inaccessible to women and girls. By supporting development programs using the football3 methodology, the fund aims to increase and accelerate impact of the formal and informal education system by empowering tens of thousands of young people to prepare for their role in society and become active changemakers themselves.
