Network Member

'Pasión Petare' is a social organisation developed to use football training in order to reduce violence and promote social inclusion for boys and girls in at-risk neighborhoods. The NGO seeks social inclusion through football instruction which improves children's psychosocial growth and gives them the necessary skills to better themselves in their daily life.

 

Our mission is to provide at-risk youths with an alternative way of life using football. Pasión Petare's goal is to be recognised worldwide as a replicable model for social organisations to promote the social inclusion of children and adolescents through football training.
