vocational training for streetchildren in Maputo, Mozambique

Centro de Encontro has developed many projects in Maputo over the past 17 years for street children in Maputo. Among them a school for the extremely poor children that live in the streets of Maputo. Unfortunately statistics have shown that for young people between the age of 16 and 20 yrs it is very hard to find a job. Even the high school equivalent exam does not ensure finding a job for these children.

soccer shoes and balls for the soccer club for poor children from the slums of Maputo, Mozambique

Centro de Encontro is an independent NGO and has organised many activities for street children in Maputo over the past 15 years. One of the most successful projects is the soccer school “ Leoes de Holanda'  (lions of Holland) . The boysand girls that play for the soccerschool live in a place where they are confronted with violence, drugs and prostitution on a daily base. It is especially for this reason that Centro de Encontro tries very hard to keep this part of the soccer school active. So the kids can - at least for the duration of one soccer game - be away from that violent existence.Every year there the school needs to invest for new supplies for both the boys and the girls teams.
