Our concept

WE PROMOTE
„SPORT FOR SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE“

The Goal: Self-liberation from poverty

The Way
: Education and health
ThE Method:
Helping people to help themselves

The Motivation:  Sport for development
 


Sport as an incentive for education and health is the focus of the partners we support. Sport awakens a sense of community. Education and health are the most important prerequisites for overcoming poverty. Sport teaches non-violent interaction, encourages participation, creates joy in the dreary lives of slum dwellers, strengthens the body and teaches people to accept rules – first in competition, but then also in life. Sport allows people to experience success and also defeat in the game. This is summarised in our concept “Sports for Social Development and Peace”.

We help people to help themselves.
We listen to the suggestions of the partners

 

ZUKUNFT FUER KINDER IN SLUMS e.V. (ZKV) calls for SOLIDARITY with children and young people who live in precarious living conditions mostly in slums. We support non-governmental organisations that help children and young people to free themselves from poverty. That is solidarity in action! Supporting children and young people to help themselves is of particular importance for us because this avoids the weakening of the slum dwellers’ own powers and is the best way to promote the development of their personalities. Such respect for the principle of SUBSIDARITY  is the right answer to the criticism of personalities from the Global South that the “development aid” of the industrialised nations hinders the development of self-reliance in their countries.

 

ZUKUNFT FÜR KINDER IN SLUMS e.V. is primarily committed to achieving the following SDGs:

 

  • SDG3: Ensure healthy lives for all at all ages and promote their well-being.
  • SDG4: Ensure inclusive, equitable and quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
  • SDG5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
