A social movement empowering girls through football - to thrive in life!
Futebol dá força [football gives strength] is an independent foundation and social movement empowering girls with agency to make informed decisions and live a life they value.
Futebol dá força engages, trains and supports voluntary leaders to empower girls within football, while changing attitudes and norms in their local communities that today prevent girls from reaching their full potential, in order for girls to shape their own future far outside the football field.
We are a social movement that is changing the world.
What we do
We enable leaders to empower girls and change social norms in their local communities.
We enable leaders
We engage, train and support voluntary leaders on-site and online all over the world to create impact at grassroots level by empowering girls and changing harmful attitudes and norms in their local communities.
We empower girls
Our leaders create safe spaces for girls on the football field, applying our methodology and tools to empower girls with agency enabling them to make informed decisions to live a life they value.
We enable change in local communities
Our leaders work together with local stakeholders; football clubs, schools and community organisations, changing attitudes and norms in their communities that today prevent girls from reaching their full potential.
We also enable businesses to work as football coaches
To finance our work, we run a for-profit, FDF for Business, working with our methodology adapted to businesses enabling teams to leverage their business outcomes by working strategically with value based leadership and creating a safe and inclusive workplace.
Working within football and businesses enables us to impact society in general, creating a new norm for leadership enabling more people to thrive.
