The Soccer League
This is the lifeblood of our Organization. It involves our soccer leagues in the 20 majors US metro areas with players and students that involve 200 Diaspora Countries, 400 Teams and 10,000 Players. This is the cornerstone of our foundation. According the USDepartment of State, the Diaspora Immigrant community in the US has soared in the last two decades. To that end, many of those communities which are now part of the American melting pot are becoming more and more homogeneous to share a common goal to improve the world. Changing and improving the world for the better through soccer is one of the main reasons we founded the Diaspora World Cup. We strongly believe soccer is a powerful tool for Education and Development.
Coming Together as a Community
We live in a 21st-century and changing world that is increasingly globalized and interconnected. In the world of sport, soccer is no longer an activity that can just be classi"ed by humans as a game. It’s more than that. In fact, there is a lot to love about the game of soccer. Students and players who register in our league feel the pure joy when they kick the ball. They embrace the camaraderie and discipline of daily practice. We have communities coming out in full to watch matches, which are followed as passionately as is the FIFA World Cup.
A Player for a Student
At the same time, we have 62 million girls are not in schools in the developing world and that’s the bad news. It is a huge challenge humans can no longer ignore. We knowthat educating children particularly young girls can transform lives, families, and entirecountries. Each player in our network in the United States and Canada has a user power and responsibility to be for someone by simply playing for a team.
Work In Progress
Major progress has been made towards increasing access to education by major power such as the United Nations at all levels and increasing enrolment rates in schools. Basicliteracy skills have improved tremendously, yet bolder efforts are needed to make even greater strides for achieving universal education goals. One of those efforts is our major goal to build schools in the world’s poorest countries. This is just the beginning of our journey. We are in a mission to eradicate illiteracy around the world’s poorest countries through the Power of the Soccer Game.
