As a legacy of the 2010 Football World Cup, FIFA and street football world launched the Football for Hope program, with the aim of building 20 centers across Africa. The centers are managed by local NGOs, each having a specific program. All centers address health and education issues using soccer as a tool for development.
Architecture for Humanity joined the program to manage the design and construction of the community centers and the building of the soccer pitches.
By having a professional architect at each project location, working hand in hand with local consultants and the community, Architecture for Humanity developed 20 unique projects, each one specifically designed to fit the local context and answer the community’s needs.
