love.fútbol

About:
Love.fútbol partners with impoverished communities in the developing world to build simple, safe soccer fields for youth.

Mission/Philosophy:
love.fútbol moves the game from danger to safety by empowering underserved communities to build simple soccer fields for youth that have no safe place to play. They envision a day when all children will have the opportunity to fulfill their passion for soccer. The game itself is a catalyst for youth development, hope and inspiration.

What they do:
love.fútbol empowers communities to take on their own soccer field projects by using a model of community-driven development. love.fútbol works with community leaders to plan and execute their own projects in order to create institutions, capacity and organizing skills that far outlast our involvement. Our projects are true partnerships: love.fútbol finances 100% of the construction materials and provides technical expertise while our community partners donate the land and volunteer their labor.

Where they work:
love.fútbol is based in Washington, D.C. but works primarily in Guatemala where they have completed 9 projects.
