Equally to the other years, the streefootballworld network members, comprising of 20 centers were represented at the workshop of the Football for Hope 2013 conducted by streefootballworld, which this year was hosted by Alexandra Football for Hope Centre – Johannesburg, South Africa.
For this year, the streefootallworld decided to focus the discussion on two important topics for the effective functioning of the centers: the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) and Fundraising.
The agenda was still marked by the inauguration of the Alexandra Football for Hope Centre, which concluded the cycle of Football for Hope Centres’ openings, and it was also marked by the presence of notable sponsoring entities, as FIFA, represented by the Secretary General, Mr. Jérôme Valcke, and the Head of FIFA Corporate Social Responsibility, Mr. Frederick Addiechi, and streefootballworld, by Vladimir Borkovic, among others. The ceremony was also attended by entities equally influential in the design of the Football for Hope as well as representatives of other Football for Hope Centres.
In relation to the workshop , as it can be predicted, representatives from each centre, had the opportunity to once again share their knowledge and recall over past years as well as further perspectives for future projects .
Yet it is worth noting that many other pending and extreme equally important issues were discussed and that will only benefit and assist the centers in the development of their respective communities and hence the world.
