We use soccer to
build safer communities
95% of participants think that what they learned in our program will keep them safe in their lives. Here’s how Spirit of Soccer is making a difference:
Mine Risk Education (MRE)
Spirit of Soccer educates people about the dangers of landmines and ERW (Explosive Remnants of War) and gives them the skills to stay safe through our unique Mine Risk Education (MRE) curriculum.
Spirit of Soccer Equips marginalized groups like women and girls, refugees and ethnic minorities with new skills and perspectives through workshops and digital training.
Countering Violent Extremism (CVE)
For millions of young boys and girls in Iraq, their whole way of life is lost and the social structures that supported them are gone with it. For many, the loss of their community structure is just the first step in a series of upheavals that gradually undermines and erases their sense of identity and their prospects for the future.
As part of our work to rebuild communities in Iraq that were previously occupied by ISIS, we have begun creating sports fields that serve as a safe environment for participants and a clear point of community cohesion.
