UEFA supports projects in Angola to promote education through football

Angola is one of four sub-Saharan African countries with projects supported by the UEFA Children's Foundation. This partnership aims to give children greater access to education through football, the European body announced this Friday.


Children from Angola, Cameroon, DR Congo and Uganda will benefit from a partnership between the UEFA Foundation and Inter Futura, an organisation under the aegis of Inter Milan, as is already the case in Israel, Palestine and Venezuela.

"I am pleased that this partnership between Inter Campus and the UEFA Children's Foundation can continue for another two years," said Javier Zanetti, vice president of Inter Milan.

The project is called "Black'n Blue" and its aims are to improve the education of children and reduce gender inequalities by encouraging the participation of girls, with sport and football acting as a catalyst.

"Improving health and crime prevention, using football as a preventive and development tool for children at risk" are the priorities for the project in Angola, according to UEFA.

Each country will receive four one-week actions, prepared based on the experience of Inter Campus and with the guidance of local partners, covering a total of 1,500 children.

"Whether in refugee camps around the world, in problem suburbs of European cities or in forgotten conflict zones, all the activities supported by the UEFA Children's Foundation have strengthened my desire to see European football take its place in the social development of young people around the world," stressed UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin from Slovenia.
