The Homeless World Cup Foundation uses football to encourage and energise people who are homeless to change their own lives. Currently it works with football programmes in over 70 nations reaching 40,000 homeless players every year with an ambition to engage one million players with the benefits of football by 2012.

Organização Civil de Ação Social (OCAS) is a non-profit enterprise that promotes the citizenship and empowerment of homeless and socially vulnerable people in Brazil. The organization is now working in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro to address critical social problems and a high incidence of homelessness. The OCAS street paper has been an opportunity for homeless and socially vulnerable people to make an income through the selling of a bi-monthly magazine.

Bola Pra Frente is a non-profit project which aims to stimulate learning, literacy and leadership to the youth of Rio de Janiero both in the classroom and through the organized team sports and self expression.
