The Fútbol Más Foundation joins the call for a culture of peace through various actions
Almost one month after the beginning of the social discontent in Chile, the activation of the work of the organizations of civil society is more necessary than ever. The action at the level of the territories and the communities, the positive and constructive outlook of the reality and the compromise with the children have been characteristics of the Fútbol Más Foundation. From our national context, our organization makes a call to encourage the culture of peace that may allow linking and construct a dialogue among Chileans.
In order to move forward to the changes that the country demands, the Foundation of Fútbol Más has decided to reinforce many of its actions at a territorial and national level, in order to impact positively their professionals, beneficiaries and alliances, ratifying the compromise that we have for our children and youth welfare.
Adhesion to the #NewSocialPact
Under the slogan about the voice of the civil society being heard and this being translated into real changes in society, the Foundation Fútbol Más is now part of the #NewSocialPact, which is an instance that seeks to take the voice of the diverse territories in which diverse organizations work non profit, at the level of the public policies that can be generated from the social demands. As a foundation, and experts in sport for development, this pact means to give a voice to the experts in social topics, representing the voice of the diverse organizations in the face of the tables of conversation in the Ministry of Social Development and the State.
“As a Civil Society we have insistently warned the political and corporate world about the serious conditions of economic, gender, dignity and treatment inequality, and the scarcity of participation space. Today we feel impotence and frustration because we have also failed in our task”, they say from the #NewSocialPact.
The participation of our organization, in this initiative, must be reflected in the next months in the decision that the State takes from the view of the diverse outlooks of society and above all in a moment of peace and conciliation that impact in the NNJ.
Back to the action in the territories
During november and december, the different teams of our foundation will be in the field, in the 11 regions where we are present, promoting the spaces of participation and strengthening the communitary organization and the social network that is very necessary in order to create positive agreements for the children and youth. One of the objectives of this actions is to connect with the communities again, to organize them and to give them tools in order to contribute the children in their daily lives, understanding the context in which they are requesting improvements in the quality of life of the citizens.
Furthermore, the teams will have the mission of giving emotional support to the children when working with adverse contexts, and also of reassuring the closing of the processes of 2019 in the Fútbol Más communities.
Strengthening of the working map with the BGT
From the context that Chile is living and as a tool for the development for the children and youth of our interventions, Fútbol Más has included in its sportpartner sessions contents about culture of peace and an assertive resolution of conflicts, as a part of the map of contents that are applied in the neighbourhoods, schools and communitary spaces.
Today is when socioemotional education of the BGT takes more importance, but also the transference of learning in respect of the relevance of peace and the dialogue in their daily habits.
Childhood and its right during crisis
As an organization, and understanding the situation of the BGT in Chile, our foundation participates in the Infancy Table of the Community of Solidary Organizations (CSO), who represents the outlook of the civil society that works with children and the youth in a hundred of territories in the country.
Through this initiative, which has been working for years for the chilean BGT, Fútbol Más looks for the protection of the infancy rights, which according to UNICEF and the Children Advocacy, they have been infringed. Our organization will sum up to the diverse initiatives and statements that this instance would do, promoting peace and respect to them.
