The NGO Camaquito is convinced that sport is an important way of providing a lasting contribution to the development of children and adolescents. This is why sports activities have become an important component of Camaquito's project strategy. Camaquito focuses in particular on the 'viva el fútbol' project. And playing football is a way to broaden and improve the available leisure activities. This was the philosophy behind the program 'fútbol en los barrios' (football in the quartiers), a program that provides access to football and to sport in general for thousands of children. Providing technical support to footballers and coaches, as well as regular, national football camps are part of the concept.
The project is actively supported by Jörg Stiel, former captain of Switzerland's national football team.
