Team New Zealand is organised by Street Football Aotearoa, a Charitable Trust developing grassroots football projects for homeless and excluded people.
Organisation- Street Football AOTEAROA
Street Football Aotearoa is entirely by volunteers. They support organisations working with people experiencing homelessness to develop football sessions in different cities across New Zealand.
They also aim to highlight the issues of homelessness and exclusion and to provide financial support for selected players to represent New Zealand at the Homeless World Cup.
Their vision is to develop an extensive network of projects enabling the largest possible number of socially excluded New Zealanders to have the opportunity to play sport and enjoy its physical, psychological, and social benefits. They aim to use the power of sports to inspire people to reach their full potential.
