UEFA Foundation for Children supported Football-based Circular Economy, Health, Life Skills & Gender Equality education, Garut, Indonesia

24 February 2023

Aligned to UN SDGs 3 (Good Health & Well Being), 4 (Quality Education), 5 (Gender Equality) and 12 (Responsible Consumption & Production), the UEFA Foundation for children supported ASA Foundation social intervention program trains, educates, empowers and improves the lives of vulnerable male and female youth and adults based in the mountainous region of Garut in West Java, Indonesia. This area suffers from extreme poverty with poor levels of health and education, and a lack of development.


Therefore, through project support from UEFA Foundation for children together with the Indonesian government ministries of education and youth & sports, ASA Foundation is using the power of football to build the capacity of over 3,000 teacher and youth beneficiaries on important health, life skills, gender equality and circular economy education to ensure cleaner, greener societies across the Garut regency.


Using a participatory classroom workshop combined with a football-based learning methodology, the beneficiaries are collecting, segregating and recycling waste materials such as plastic bags, bottles and containers to develop football training equipment such balls, cones, markers, bibs and poles for the student activities.


Furthermore, ASA Foundation is providing livelihood opportunities through the recruitment, training and employment of talented teacher beneficiaries to become master trainers for future ASA Foundation projects.
