The Homeless World Cup partner in India is Slumsoccer, which aims to reach to Indian underprivileged using Football as a tool for Social Empowerment.
Organisation- Slum Soccer
Slum soccer is promoting development through the medium of football on a daily basis. Providing socially neglected, homeless adults and youths, male and female with a chance to play football will not only enhance their fitness but also skills like team-building, self-esteem, friendship, togetherness with the society, self-confidence and creativity. Organized coaching sessions with various trained coaches are conducted touching as many as seven hundred children every day.
Slum soccer has been conducting a nationwide football contest annually which has so far witnessed participation from 7 different states for the last 3 years. The tournament serves as a supreme platform for showcasing young talents and enables us to pick the squad that would represent the country in the Homeless World Cup. Slum soccer has been taking care of the travel and accommodation charges of all the participants and their coaches over these years.
