Network Member

Los Pioneros promotes positive changes in the lives of children and young people in Callao, a port city located west of Peru’s capital Lima.

The organisation has been using football since 1978 to improve quality of life in underserved communities, creating positive experiences and advocating for peaceful coexistence. In sports programmes, art workshops, life skills trainings, street football games and futsal tournaments, the participants get the opportunity to develop personal skills, enhance their self-esteem, and learn to lead a self-determined life. Responsible for planning and implementing the organisation’s activities, young people develop their leadership skills and become role models in sport, education and art.
