Living acceptance and community

Football training and competitions
for street children

Focus Congo organizes street children from different neighborhoods in Bukavu into teams. Training is not just about the sport itself, but also about creating a safe framework in which rules are followed and acceptance is practiced - and in a playful way! At least once a week, street children experience what is normal for others: being a completely normal child and being able to play. Forget about everyday life, at least for a moment. Focus Congo also organizes football competitions - even if the fighting spirit is awakened, the competitions are particularly about being together. For this work, Focus Congo procures jerseys, balls and food during training.

skate park
For street children

Our team built the first skate park in Goma for street children and young people of all backgrounds to create a safe haven for young people. It is a place where acceptance and community are lived and where even young people without perspective can give free rein to their energy, frustration and anger in a positive way. They are accompanied by our team, who support the young people, build relationships with them and show empathy. We try things out together on the ramps, sweat and learn. The skate park urgently needs to be renovated and re-equipped.
