How to link football and ecology

It has been a dream for me to find out how we can get young people of Manica to contribute positively to their health – living style. last year in December we started with a group of 23 youths. A mixed gender group. We targeted Bairro 25 de Setembro’s playing ground. The pitch was having two gullies running in through the middle to the end of the the pitch. They were caused by erosion. We closed the gullies and planted grass afterwards. Today it is the pitch which even the community church groups want to use for their functions. It has grass all over and we can say it is now relatively flat. FUTECO’s under 10 and 14 are using this space for football training and tournaments every day of the week.
