Pillars & Programmes

We are the only organisation in the world that use Football to combine community‐based activity with diplomatic impact. The design of the programme has grown out of the Football world, there has been input from managers and players and also our greatest asset – young people.

Football for Peace is using the global influence of football with partners to bring resource and awareness to 5 key challenges which are interconnected both locally and globally.



Often we mistake stability, in terms of security and economic activity, to mean a country is doing well. We forget the third and important pillar: rule of law and respect for human rights.

Kofi Annan, Secretary-General, UN, 1997-2006
