In Cazucá, one of the most marginalised, deprived and violent areas of Colombia, nearly 70 percent of the population is classified as displaced. The strain on the young people often increases the likelihood of them joining gangs and can lead to drug addiction, teenage pregnancies as well as recruitment by armed groups.

 

Originally started as a football school in 2006, Tiempo de Juego now uses a range of sport, cultural and recreational activities in order to protect and support children in the most vulnerable areas of Colombia.

 

Through football training sessions, art workshops, cultural and educational courses, the organisation educates children and young people between the ages of 5 and 18 about the effective use of their free time away from drugs and gangs.

 

Since its inception, the organisation has been helping boys and girls from Cazucá, Timbiquí and Santa Marta put into practice the values learned on the pitch to create a safer, more peaceful community.
