About Slum Soccer The unbridled joy on the faces of a few street children kicking a broken bucket around a slushy ground in an impromptu game of football, blissfully unaware of the pelting rain in the midst of a sudden rainstorm, prompted the founding of Slum Soccer. The organization was registered as a Non Governmental Public Charitable Trust Organization governed by the Public Trust Act of the state of Maharashtra in 2001 Unconventional as it may seem, development through sport has a track record of being successful, across continents and from our own experience. www.slumsoccer.org
Why Football? The ‘beautiful game’ is a unique and yet, a perfect vehicle that transcends race, religion, language and gender to bring about a change in the lives of street dwellers. www.slumsoccer.org
Why Football? We chose to work with football, in specific due to a number of reasons elucidated below Easily affordable/accessible Modifiable to suit our specific messages/needs Inherent stickiness of messaging World’s most popular sport Still nascent in India, unique factor www.slumsoccer.org

Grassroots Football Development www.slumsoccer.org
Grassroots Football Development Slum Soccer’s initial programs started off using football as a tool for development However, as we represented India on the international stage – we began to also focus on developing a solid football culture and style of play at the organization This focus is reflected through initiatives that see international coaches visit and work with our community coaches to develop their knowledge of the game www.slumsoccer.org
Grassroots Football Development Model We have followed international best practices (albeit unintentionally) in how we have developed our grassroots football program Starting with 4v4, progressing to 7x7 and finally moving on to 11v11 This structure is followed by leading international academies worldwide. Logic being lower the number of players allows for more touches, more time on the ball, more confidence www.slumsoccer.org
