All_FS_toernament

On the 30th of July, a unique football tournament took place at Complexo da Penha on the safe space in Chatuba. During the The Favela Champions, 6 teams from different favela's competed with one another. With this initiative, the foundation showed the world that girls everywhere deserve the same standing as boys – on and off the football pitch. For more info about the project you can check the Favela Street website.
