Football with Refugees in Cameroon

Red Deporte works in East Cameroon since 2012, supporting the refugees from the neighbouring Central African Republic.

Sport, and especially football, is used to improve girls performance at school; and also to promote basic health among youth and children. Our program is supported by FIFA Football for Hope, the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) and the Embassy of the United States in Cameroon. In six years, under the multisectoral program, we built two primary and secondary schools and equipped two community schools with facilities for football, basketball, and volleyball.
