Our Solution & Operational Area
Football Without Borders’ Theory of Change is based on the assumption that concrete positive changes in a young person’s behaviour, activity or situation are dependent on changes in their perspective, perception of themselves and others. The popularity of sports particularly football in Africa, encourages cultural unity and self-empowerment for the youth which can be used as a force for good. Boxing and Martial arts are effective in instilling skills of peace and conflict resolution in communities with a high level of crime and violence by equipping participants with self defence skills. Our goal is to challenge gender stereotypes by assertively including young women in these male dominated sports in order to foster equality and inclusion.
Our strategy of action is based on a methodology of the Four FWB Pillars, which work holistically and are integrated within the various projects and activities of the organization:
Education: Use sport as a catalyst to provide inclusive quality education programs that promote lifelong learning.
Health: Use sport as a catalyst to promote cultural unity, equality, wellness and address societal health stigmas.
Community: Use sport as a catalyst to foster community collaboration and external partnerships, youth leadership and access to resources.
Gender: Use sport as a catalyst to provide girls and women with a platform for advocacy and awareness for raising gender equality
