67 humanitarian projects around the world have been selected in the framework of the call for projects launched during the summer by the UEFA Foundation. The winners will share a budget of around €5 millions.

The UEFA Foundation, through its call for projects, aims to improve the living conditions of children and to defend their rights. For Aleksander Ceferin, president of UEFA, the Foundation “has more than ever an important social role to play by strengthening its support for the most vulnerable around the world (…)”.

Of the 67 winning projects, 30 (45%) were submitted by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) based in Europe and 13 (19%) were submitted by NGOs based in Africa. Among the structures based on the African continent, the Play Soccer Ghana association referenced on the platform is one of them.
