Brazil based volunteer organization Iko Proan is offering a volunteer sports program, to coach young boys at school for soccer. The projetct started in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, and now will extend to foreign countries, like Tanzania, Uganda, Argentina.

In Brazil, for some children from a favela a dream becam true, when they finally made part of the national team. It is the dream of social mobility, that boys born in a Rio favela once can compete on a world cup. On the football field, erverybody has equal chances to win.

With the words of Afonso from London, a football coaching volunteer in Brazil:

"My favourite memories are the smiles on people’s faces when I bought football equipment and stationary with money raised by friends and work colleagues. I was able to raise £530 in two weeks and would highly recommend raising some money through a donation website, so you can go the extra mile with supporting the locals". – Afonso, Kingsto University, London
