Charity Gifts of education and skills training
World Gifts from our Education and Skills Training Fund will give people of all ages the chance to learn, fulfill their potential and work towards a brighter, more secure future.
Sport, especially football, is a fantastic way to bring children together.
In Peixinhos, Brazil, domestic and gang violence are common and often caused by drugs, unemployment and lack of access to quality education. One of CAFOD's partners in Brazil is using football to break this cycle of violence, drugs and unemployment which are ever present in the lives of many families in the community.
Football workshops allow children and young people to build trust, team work, ambition and a good work ethic through physical exercise. Many are from rival gangs so we have built in ‘conversation circles’ before and after football games to debate issues such as drugs, respect, and friendship. The kits, footballs and training provided by World Gifts can give these young people a way to come together and a positive alternative to drugs and crime.
