On March 21st, the Besongabang Football for Hope Centre in Cameroon opened its doors with a grand opening ceremony. The whole community of Besongabang was here and the site could hardly fit everybody. The event featured local singers, dancers, and dignitaries as well as representatives of regional and national government, FIFA, streetfootballworld and others.

At the end of March, Design Corps held their 14th annual conference, Structures for Inclusion surrounding the topic of confronting design processes to consider the broader social and economic well-being of communities and cities, to promote design for social good.
