The Soccer Project
How do you reach out to a community that loves to watch and play soccer? Well you start your own soccer club and you make sure it is a winner!
YWAM Recife is utilising the Brazilian national sport, soccer to reach children and adolescents in the community and teach moral and family values. About 180 students between 8 and 20 years old are enrolled each year in our soccer school. These are divided into 5 categories according to age. There are two days of class each week and one day of discipleship by category.
In addition, we have both family and school participation days, and we compete in some championships in Camaragibe and Recife on the weekends. The Show de Bola project has been running now for 10 years and we rejoice in what God has done in our midst!
