We are happy to announce that we have been selected and invited to participate in the streetfootballworld Festival 2019,in Lyon France. Our delegation will be a team of 6 participants comprising 1 delegation head,1 young leader and 4 players. The festival will provide us with a unique opportunity to connect with peers from 40+ development through football organisations from around the world, learn from one another and share how football can change our communities.
The festival will mark the first time that the social dimension of the game is celebrated in connection with the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. After successful events around the men’s tournament since 2006, it is time that the Women’s World Cup is given a similar opportunity!
The festival will bring together over 200 disadvantaged young people from around the world to participate in a YOUTH FORUM, a FOOTBALL FOR GOOD SUMMIT and a FOOTBALL3 TOURNAMENT that will demonstrate football’s unique position to promote gender equality and female empowerment.
