Slum Soccer

Work with CAC has greatly helped us to build on our sustainability in terms of developing our coaches, it has also helped us better the quality of our program by coming in with their own brand of football based game.

KVSN (Slum Soccer) exists to offer opportunities and motivation to slum-dwelling, disadvantaged, and homeless children and young adults. We use football as a tool for social improvement, increased self worth and education, whilst providing a platform for all players to demonstrate and improve their level of performance in sports as well as education.

This year we aim build on our ongoing and successful programs, while at the same time expanding Slum Soccer’s reach to new sites within Nagpur and the surrounding area with a view to providing a blueprint to be replicated across India. We hope to dramatically increase the number and the level of our coaching programs by concentrating on Coach Education which will enable us to develop coaches from within our own organization and provide a structured development path for our players. This will enable us to create, run and then evaluate and improve more programs across India than ever before. The players from our very first projects are now ready to progress to become coaches and we want them to meet that challenge. We see this as an evolution of our project.
