– Moldova is one of the poorest countries in Europe and young people growing up in the country face high unemployment, few prospects and the threat of drugs and crime

– Using an adapted curriculum to respond to local needs, we have trained and graduated 50 local coaches at UEFA C-license standard, including 20 police officers both male and female

– These coaches deliver clinics focusing on conflict resolution and youth development in Moldova and Transnistria
