Initiated by Delta Cultura Austria, the Escola de Futebol do Tarrafal (Tarrafal Football School) empowers young people to direct their own lives and helps them see the possibility of a fulfilling future in Cape Verde. Since the country is riddled by high unemployment and emigration rates, many young people grow up demoralised by their surroundings.
The main objective is to get young people off the streets and offer them something they love: football. Children and teenagers learn about teamwork, taking responsibility, working to reach a goal, and thinking long-term in order to improve their future. Connected to the football school is a community centre that offers vocational courses, cultural activities and more.
