Youth Sports

Brazil

Location: Brazil

The Bate Bola (“Hit the Ball”) project offers inner-city children an opportunity to take part in sports and exercise, promoting physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle. While strengthening their bodies, they learn about the concepts of fair play, good sportsmanship and self-esteem—critical tools and skills for preventing their involvement in the crime and violence prevalent in their communities. In addition to sports, youth also learn about preventive health, hygiene and good nutrition, and those with specific health concerns are linked to local medical teams.
