Ecuador recently qualified for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. It was a fantastic achievement for La Tricolor, who made it to the World Cup in Germany in 2006 but missed out on the tournament in South Africa four years later.

In the Video of the Week, we take a look at this South American country and introduce a Football for Hope project that is helping both children and adults to choose the right path in life. Fudela gives all those involved in its programmes new opportunities to make the most of their potential. 

With the help of football, adults and young people alike learn how to interact with their fellow human beings and learn the importance of completing their studies. As a result of the programmes, all participants not only have the chance to “become a neighbourhood champion”, as one of the youth programmes states, but also to achieve great things beyond their community.
