Founded in 2000, the Instituto Bola Pra Frente has motivated children and adolescents in situations of social vulnerability to dream of a different future. In addition to encouraging the dreams, the Institute points out ways for them to become real through sport, education, art and culture and professional qualification. The Instituto Bola Pra Frente uses the fascination of football and the image of renowned athletes to attract beneficiaries and transform lives.
For the Institute, football is more than a sport: it is a universal playful language that translates human contradictions, allowing the construction of values in a perspective of social promotion. Bola Pra Frente created and consolidated a very social intervention methodology, which uses educational sports to enable the promotion of children, adolescents, young people and their families living in vulnerable situations.
Throughout its history, the Bola Pra Frente is proud to be an international reference in the use of educational sport as a tool for social transformation, and has served more than 15,000 children and adolescents.
