Poverty in Brazil affects all areas of society, yet its effects disproportionately impact young people and their access to equal education and sport.


Since its foundation in 1994, Fundação Esportiva e Educacional Pró Criança e Adolescente (EPROCAD) has used football as a tool to encourage education and contribute to the physical well-being of children and young people in the community. Based in Santana de Parnaíba, São Paulo, EPROCAD runs after-school training sessions and initiatives with a football-based educational methodology.


One of these projects, includes “Futbol de Rua”, a project that engages 120 young people over the course of a year in varying activities such as computer science and physical education.


Alongside its work in education, EPROCAD runs the “Comunidade em Movimento” project that uses football to open up dialogue on obesity and health issues in the community.
