Increasing school attendance among participants

With almost 50% of young people graduating secondary school late due to the lack of quality education and high rates of youth unemployment, opportunities are limited in Rio de Janeiro.


Founded in 2000 by World Cup winner Jorginho, Bola Pra Frente seeks to change this by using sport to engage young people and give them extra-curricular help with school work.


The organisation seeks to open doors for children and young people between the ages of 6 and 17 in vulnerable communities in Rio de Janeiro.


Bola Pra Frente believes in transforming simple sports practice not only into entertainment, fun, well-being and quality of life, but above all into human development and social transformation.
