CBFFS

Centre de Formation de Football au Sénégal

How this project was created?
After seeing the skills, passion and courage of Senegal, one of the most successful teams in the 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan, an idea came to the mind of Aldonilson de Barros Franco, ex Brazilian footballer and coach of football schools. Along with Francis Franco, his wife, they decided to leave Brazil and create a football project in Dakar, Senegal.With the aim of creating a project in which children, adolescents and youngsters would have the opportunity to receive sports instruction and education, they started November 4, 2004 the Brazilian Football Center of Senegal (CBFFS) – from practically zero. The official launching took place April 8, 2006 with the presence of the Senegalese Minister of Sports and the Brazilian Ambassador at Dakar.
The project
The successful experience of a number of Brazilian footballers, who came from poor families and change their future through football, reinforced the idea to give priority to disadvantage children of Dakar. They are the main target of CBFFS.However, the project goes beyond the simple idea of being a “successful footballer”. The CBFFS seeks to establish a broad strategy of sport and education, using football as a pedagogical tool to advocate for individual and collective development, promoting social inclusion. This approach has a significant social impact, helping to eliminate inequalities and provide more opportunities through sport culture and education, contributing to the achievement of development goals by Senegal and establishing a real modality of South-South cooperation.
Project objectives.
-Use football as a tool for social inclusion, creating new talents and giving opportunities for their future.
-Stimulate participation of the project’s participants in the education process, promoting their school’s interest and attendance, reinforcing the importance of being educated for their future.
-Contribute to the eradicating social violence and dissuade our project participants from engage in criminal activities.
-Promote solidarity, team work and tolerance, spirit of brotherhood and social dialogue and harmony.To guarantee the sustainability of the project, without having any financial support, it is divided into two centers, the Private Center (Center I) and the Social Center (Center II). The Center I would provide most of the financial resources needed to support Center II. Only with this financial strategy, the project expanded in the last two years and has been recognized by the Senegalese sports community and by the Brazilian authorities.
Implementation Strategy
A group of volunteers implement the project every week from Monday to Saturday, under the technical supervision of Mr. Barros Franco. Currently, four volunteers are working with more than 100 children. These children are from different countries such as, France, USA, Cameroon, Cape Vert, Italy, UK, etc. However, the majority of the project participants are from Senegal. Although being financially supported by the General Secretary of Missions of Brazil, the project has is own financial strategy. To implement it, the CBFFS is divided in two Centers.
Center I
Considered as Private Center, a financial formula to guarantee the functioning of the Center II. Their participants pay the subscription and a monthly fee knowing that their financial contribution will used in the Center II. This approach helps to inculcate good actions and a sense of solidarity in the children of Center II and in their families as well. This is a multicultural and multinational center. More than 50 children from different countries are enrolled.The training camp of this Center is the football facility of Ebbetts Field, located in one of the most beautiful sea-fronts of Dakar.
Center II
Considered our Social Center where more than 50 children have an opportunity to change their present. In this Center, disadvantaged children and adolescents receive education for their life, free of cost, through football. These children are selected following criteria established by the project. They live in the poorest area of Dakar and many have difficulties to attend school.
Main project’s components.
The CBFFS project is divided into two components, football and education.
Football
-Teach initial football techniques.
-Use advance techniques during practical training.
-Organize football training camps for children between 5 and 18 years old.
-Arrange friendly matches and participate in football tournaments, creating teams with children of the same age, but of different background as an opportunity to bring together, in the same teams Center I and Center II.-Organize training camps for national coaches and referees.
-Establish exchanges with Brazilians teams.
Education
-Support the education of disadvantaged children (the participants in the project may attend school, those who not, will receive the project’s support to enroll in Dakar educational centers.
-Partnership with others organizations to provide vocational training in:
-Literacy program (French and Wolof),
-Information technology,-Mechanical training,
-Arts (theatre, arts, dance, music)through which these children learn about the best traditions of Senegalese and Brazilian cultures.
-Organize cultural activities.
-Provision of a nutritious snack to support their daily feeding.Participant’s age
Participants are divided by age-groups according to the name of renowned Brazilian footballers, as a means to associate the project’s participants with role models and Brazilian football. In May 2007, three new teams will be added to the project, two boys’ teams and one for girls. Frequently, the Center I and Center II participants get together during special training sessions, friendly matches and tournaments.
Achievements
After two years, the CBFFS has trained more than 550 adolescents and youngsters and more than 200 have received the project certificate either because they finished the process (more than 19 years old) or left the country. In the case of Center I, more than 300 potential footballers have been trained, while in the Center II, more than 230 have taken part in this project. Participants of both centers have played together in more than 72 friendly and tournament matches, exchanging with different football schools of Dakar, among them Diambars Academy and international schools. More than 100 children from Center II have received training courses and participated in cultural activities. The project has helped 16 children to be enrolled in the Senegalese education system. Since the project opening, it has been recognized by Senegalese sports authorities and supported by the Brazilian Embassy in Dakar, Senegal.Thanks to this effort, the project’s children have been nurtured in a sane environment and dissuaded to be engaged in criminal activities. With its multicultural approach, the CBFF is helping to create a better citizen more than an athlete.PerspectivesThe project has plans to be extended to the principal cities of Senegal (Thies, Saint Louis, Zinguinchor and Tambacounda). Internationally, the idea is to replicate the project in the region (Mauritania, Morocco, Mali and Niger). To “export” the vision of this project, the Dakar Center will capacitate the staff responsible to implement the project in these countries.
