Transcript of "Next Step 2014 presentation by Dr. Abhijeet Barse from Slumsoccer"

  1. 1. Slum Soccer One Goal www.slumsoccer.org
  2. 2. About Slum Soccer The unbridled joy on the faces of a few street children kicking a broken bucket around a slushy ground in an impromptu game of football, blissfully unaware of the pelting rain in the midst of a sudden rainstorm, prompted the founding of Slum Soccer. The organization was registered as a Non Governmental Public Charitable Trust Organization governed by the Public Trust Act of the state of Maharashtra in 2001 Unconventional as it may seem, development through sport has a track record of being successful, across continents and from our own experience. www.slumsoccer.org
  3. 3. Why Football? The ‘beautiful game’ is a unique and yet, a perfect vehicle that transcends race, religion, language and gender to bring about a change in the lives of street dwellers. www.slumsoccer.org
  4. 4. Why Football? We chose to work with football, in specific due to a number of reasons elucidated below Easily affordable/accessible Modifiable to suit our specific messages/needs Inherent stickiness of messaging World’s most popular sport Still nascent in India, unique factor www.slumsoccer.org
  5. 5. What We Do Academy Community Development Project Young Stars Nearly 650 to 700 underprivileged people train in Slum Soccer academies across 6 states on a daily basis . In addition to the sport of football, participants and their families attend workshops and are taught essential life skills Slum Soccer’s youth football development program where children start training from the age of six National Tournament Women’s Football Homeless World Cup Annual Tournament attended by teams from 16 states in the country Slum Soccer places great emphasis on Women’s Empowerment and Gender Equality. Our Women’s program is as robust as the men’s Annual Event attended by 72 nations. Slum Soccer represents the country at the tournament every year www.slumsoccer.org
  6. 6. Grassroots Football Development www.slumsoccer.org
  7. 7. Grassroots Football Development Slum Soccer’s initial programs started off using football as a tool for development However, as we represented India on the international stage – we began to also focus on developing a solid football culture and style of play at the organization This focus is reflected through initiatives that see international coaches visit and work with our community coaches to develop their knowledge of the game www.slumsoccer.org
  8. 8. Grassroots Football Development Model We have followed international best practices (albeit unintentionally) in how we have developed our grassroots football program Starting with 4v4, progressing to 7x7 and finally moving on to 11v11 This structure is followed by leading international academies worldwide. Logic being lower the number of players allows for more touches, more time on the ball, more confidence www.slumsoccer.org

  10. 10. 3 Impact on Communities www.slumsoccer.org
