Open Fun Football Schools

Cross Cultures Project Association

Soziales Friedensförderung

Bewährte Verfahren

The organisation’s success has been largely based on its ability to recruit competent volunteers to run its programmes. Cross Cultures has educated more than 20,000 voluntary coaches that have been recruited in the local communities involved. Furthermore, all Open Fun Football Schools are organised in accordance with a so-called “twin-city strategy” where football clubs, leaders, coaches and children from a minimum of two municipalities and three football clubs representing hostile population groups organise an Open Fun Football School jointly.
