FUT5OL MalawI

INTRODUCTION:

FUT5OL is a 501 (c) non profit organization based in the US that exists to promote the full development and realization of potential by children and youth thus ensuring their full participation and contribution to the development of society, the organization endeavors to do this by expanding choices and opportunities for children and young people through sport and participatory community based activities. The initiative was born out of concern on the plight of disadvantaged children and youth who are affected by poverty, poor health, illiteracy, single parent homes, drug and substance abuse.

PROJECT

Recognising that quality of life is a basic right and that every child has a right to athletic participation regardless of their social status, the program endeavours to work with communities in making FUT5OL services accessible particularly to children from disadvantaged families. Our strategy is to empower the local communities and the potential coaches to play active role in the development of the program.

FUT5OL recognizes that the youth are a valuable asset in the social and economic life of any community, FUT5OL is committed to facilitating youth friendly processes that ensure that young people are adequately empowered to manage the challenges facing them. The program strives to bring the youth together to socialize, share experiences and learn from each other through sports.

The project will recruit and train local men & women . We hope to provide instruction, and materials to equip them with relevant skills to lead practice sessions and outreaches to their potential coaches in schools and in the wider community. The FUT5OL PROGRAM will seek to increase the number of instructors within the community. Similarly, FUT5OL will work closely with teachers to form child rights and health clubs at primary school level to serve as platform of engaging young people in seeking solutions to the challenges facing them.

On regular basis, especially on weekends and during school holidays, the project will facilitate youth meetings at the central location as a means of promoting experience sharing and cross fertilisation of ideas. , Fut5ol encourages the services of professionals to share and guide the youth on the critical issues in their lives. Efforts will be made to source for play equipment and futbol materials which shall be at the disposal of the instructors and youth for purposes of recreation and learning.
