Fútbol Más

Fútbol Más started in 2008 with the aim of promoting resilience and happiness in socially vulnerable children and adolescents. It is implemented in the heart of the neighbourhoods, working with two main groups: children and their communities.

Mission of the programme is: Promote the well-being of children and young people, strengthening resilience processes, significant links and community cohesion through play and sports.

Vision that guides its implementation is:

Community, happiness and inspiration.

Main Objective of the programme:

Fútbol Más neighbourhoods seeks to promote the development of resilience in girls, boys, adolescents and youth to ensure their wellbeing and that of their community.

Specific Objectives

  • Develop internal strengths and skills for action in children and adolescents by promoting their development of resilience.
  • Promote positive parenting of the parents of children and adolescents to support an environment that facilitates resilience.
  • Advance the development of meaningful cross-cutting links among all actors involved in the implementation of the social program, to promote resilience.

On the one hand, the program aims to strengthen the resources in children by using football as a tool to develop skills that can be used in all areas of life and, above all, bring happiness. In Fútbol Más there is the believe that valuing the positive, will transform reality.

On the other hand, the aim is for the communities to get to know each other, connect and fill public spaces with life. Fútbol Más focuses on relationships as the key pillar of society.

Currently, the foundation is working in seven regions of Chile and additionally has a presence in Peru, Ecuador, Haiti, Mexico, Paraguay and Kenya with a total of 5,000 children in more than 70 neighbourhoods.
