How we operate
Poverty, disease, exploitation and ostracism are what plague the poor parts of the world. The victims are mostly the children. With these factors apparent the infancy of the children of these places becomes a privilege not a given right. Muti Onlus comes to the aid of the children found in disadvantaged situations who live in countries that experience harsh political oppression – social or economic.
Two complimentary strategies have been developed – one that is operated in and viewed directly by those in the place of participation, and the other, an external campaign with the focus of building awareness and support of the project within other countries of the northern hemisphere.
First priority: activity within the place of participation.
- to give the possibility to the children to play soccer as a recreational activity outside of their primary obligation of going to school;
- to supply the children with the necessary equipment and apparel to play soccer;
- to encourage the children to follow the program of education available in the place they live as well as being involved in the activity of this sport;
- to communicate and teach the values of respect, friendship, responsibility, selflessness, and the correct behaviour with regards to the game of soccer;
- to allow the children to strive within harsh social conditions and provide them with the opportunity to follow programs of integration.
Second priority: to build awareness and create support for the project within other developed countries.
- organise events and campaigns in order to build awareness and to speed up the process of donations – private and from companies;
- to increase solidarity, respect for others, and integration against the prejudices of race, sex, religious faith, culture or political involvement;
- to learn and teach the positive realities of the countries of the third world and to promote and share their human and socio-cultural values;
- to take advantage of the popularity of soccer within developed countries in order to involve as many people as possible – and make them aware of the realities faced by the children living in underdeveloped nations;
- to promote the values that make up the game of soccer – a unique sport for the community.
