The Homeless World Cup Partner in Cameroon is ASAFE, a registered NGO working in education and financial support for socially excluded women from rural areas, including micro financing.
Organisation - ASAFE
The organisation operates in Douala and Bafang in the West Province of Cameroon, involving 70 players. It began its street soccer development programme in 2004 and worked with male players until 2007, when it switched its focus to bringing the benefits of football to women. In 2008, it took an all-womens team to the Homeless World Cup in Melbourne. Its goal is to spread street soccer development activities to other cities - and more sports equipment is needed to do this.
In 2012, they organized several Street soccer tournaments in the quarters of the town of Douala. These were followed by training workshops on how to manufacture goals nets. Participants were segmented in 3 groups (25 per group). These seminars were organized thanks to the additional support from WomenWin USA.
