Weʼre raising £10,000 to help fund the travel of the 2018 Zimbabwe Homeless World Cup team to Mexico in November.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Homeless World Cup Foundation is a unique, pioneering social movement which uses football to inspire people who are homeless to change their own lives. Through its 70 National Partners, the foundation organizes an annual international football tournament for homeless, socially excluded and marginalized people from across its network members.
Youth Achievement Sports for Development (YASD) is the official Zimbabwean partner of the Homeless World Cup. Homelessness is a struggle, more so for young people who have to fight social exclusion, discrimination and classification. YASD uses sport, football in particular, to support and inspire these young people to positively transform their own lives.
Guided by the values of inclusion, participation and development, the Homeless World Cup team will comprise of young women and men from vulnerable and marginalized communities, among them people living with albinism.People living with albinism are often ostracized and face social challenges which result in them not being part of the broader social grouping.
Young women and men face various challenges, social marginalization and stigmatization which then leads to early and forced marriages, drug and alcohol abuse, as well as petty crime. The Homeless World Cup presents an opportunity to change the perceptions and attitudes towards people who are experiencing homelessness.
