Network Member

Asociación Civil Gurises Unidos (GGUU) was founded in 1989 to protect and promote the rights of disadvantaged children in Uruguay. In 1998, Gurises Unidos systematically integrated football as a tool to raise participation levels among hard to reach target groups. GGUU has evolved into one of South America’s most renowned NGOs in this field, with a broad range of ongoing programmes focusing on topics such as child labour, vocational training, street children, gender and civil society.
