Give children a future with football
First 1We Playground in Construction | Make the Second 1We Playground Possible
1We believes that every child, wherever in the world, has the right to play. But if you were born in, for example, the favelas of Rio de Janeiro or the slums of Dhaka, you have little future perspective. Unless you can go to school at a young age and, therefore, are able to build a better life.
Learning by playing
The 1We Football Playgrounds provide children and youngsters the opportunity to learn by playing football, all for a better future. Based on the rules of football they learn how to read, write and count. In Brazil this keeps them out of the hands of the drug mafia. In Bangladesh and Burundi they do not end up in the harsh street life.
Each football playground features a classroom, a dressing area and seats, surrounded by community based activities. With this the playgrounds also have an empowering function for the entire district. The goal of each playground is to give at least 500 children per year the chance to learn by playing.
