The social issues facing the people Brazil’s north-eastern state of Maranhão are widely acknowledged; ranging from unemployment and limited access to education, teenage pregnancies, and drug abuse.


Founded in 1999, Instituto Formação seeks to combat these issues and believes that having access to safe and inclusive sport is a fundamental right to all.


To this end, the organisation has developed a number of sports centres providing a safe space for young people to play. Through its many projects, the organisation empowers young people, generates debate around public policies aimed at enhancing the social and economic well-being of local communities, and improves child and youth development policies.
