The Fútbol Más project in Paraguay was a result of the alliance with Fondo Chile. The intervention addresses issues related to the rights of children in communities in the area of “Los Bañados”, which is historically affected by the floods of the Paraguay River.
The intervention started with a diagnosis and design process at the end of 2016, before the social-sport workshops began in January 2017 in two neighborhoods: San Vicente (Chacarita) and Las Colinas (Zeballos Cué).
Thanks to the alliance with Fe y Alegría, the intervention will be able to expand in March 2017 to two schools in “Los Bañados”: the San Miguel School and the Padre José María Vélaz School.
In the coming months, the project has the objectives of developing life skills in children, as well as creating community spaces that strengthen the project’s sustainability in Asunción.
