Proposal for Payatas Football Club, a team who live at Payatas dumpsite, the biggest rubbish dump in the area. Tens of thousands live there scavenging from the rubbish to find things to sell, recycle and even eat. We, however, believe everyone deserves a chance at life and want to show that with the opportunity thesee creative, intelligent and hardworking people can achieve anything!

esteem and newly found knowledge are all translated into the real world.
 
These developments in the prole of Philippine football are feeding into the excing developments of Tri-ple E. Already receiving great feedback from some of the members of the Philippine Football Federaon(the Filipino version of the UK’s FA) and support from a number of high prole people within sporng andpolical communies, grassroots football is more and more being aached to community development.Working in partnership with each of us pulling togetherwe can achieve things we could have only imaginedbefore. From nothing we’ve started a football team inone of the poorest areas of Manila and are ready toplay friendly matches and join tournaments this year.With the establishment of the drop

Benets
 
T
he grassroots project is already becomingan important part of many poor communi-es in Manila and indeed the centre of somechildren’s lives. Football is more than just agame to them and the project has the po-tenal to grow from strength to strength.The benets can be simply summarised asthis:
Basic Skills
 
The chance to learn to play football is highlymovang to many children. It can be usedas a vehicle to encourage and develop basicskills. Many children (having grown up play-ing basketball, the number one sport in thePhilippines) are sll learning to play success-fully and need lots of chances to pracceand learn the discipline that comes throughteamwork and sharing a vision. Waing,good listening and following an adult’s direc-on rather than their own agenda are really important skills to master. They are skills that as some of thepoorest children in the region they were oen never given the chance to learn and so are now gengthat opportunity, which is a challenge to anyone! A lack of these skills is oen the reason why a lot of street children will get into ghts on the streets. If they are lucky enough to be in school, a lack of theseskills is oen the reason they will nd it dicult to integrate and to learn, oen being suspended or ex-cluded. Geng a hang of these skills opens the door to future opportunies, such as geng an educaonand ulmately a job to support themselves and theirfamilies.
 
Coordinaon
 
Many children who are brought up on the streets or inareas of extreme deprivaon will have good physical co-ordinaon as this is needed in order to survive. Applyingwhat they needed on the streets to something more pro-ducve we can show that even when looked down on byothers, and when others gave up on them, these Filipinoscan achieve great things. With football, they will learnmore about passing, teamwork, tness and being able touse their skills for a more construcve and posive goalas part of a team.
