• All news

It’s time for the second module in Indonesia next week! As part of their Football Club Social Alliance assignment three instructors from FC Basel 1893, SV Werder Bremen and FK Austria Wien travel to Indonesia again to meet our Young Coaches in Makassar, Sulawesi, this time. We’re looking forward to a schedule packed with interesting topics and our Young Coaches coming to Makassar from all over Indonesia! 

During five full days, the Alliance’s instructors continue teaching our 33 Young Coaches further knowhow to become children’s football coaches with extended skills in social work. Here is a selection of topics awaiting our Young Coaches during the second module:

- Planning of a training session
- Methodology and child adequate training
- Respect and code of conduct
- Rights of the child
- Cooperation and external support
- Disability football
- HIV and drug prevention (by our partner NGO Rumah Cemara)
- Modified games (by our local partner NGO Uni Papua)
- PR / Fundraising

For the classes in Makassar some of the Young Coaches travel up to 2,500 kilometres for this second module –that’s what we call commitment!

During module 1 in late August the Young Coaches worked out concepts for grassroots football festivals focusing on “WASH”, “Inclusion”, “HIV & Drug Prevention”, “Conflict Resolution”, “Illiteracy” and “Malaria Prevention”. It was now their task to realise their ideas when working with underprivileged kids for their NGOs back home in their communities. We received many pictures and reports from them showing that they fulfilled their homework with lots of enthusiasm and creativity between the two modules!

Besides realising various prevention programmes through football festivals with up to 100 children, the Young Coaches also came up with distinctive and creative ideas, such as creating a beautiful and re-usable banner made out of mango tree leaves. Agus Salim and Juwaini Sulaswanto, two Young Coaches representing our local partner organisation ASA Foundation, created this banner together with 60 children from Pakuniran Elementary School, East Java. A good example for saving funds through recycling.

Our 8 Young Coaches who represent our local partner NGO Rumah Cemara in our programme realised a football festival with more than 90 local kids in Bandung focusing on “Drug Prevention”. Young Coach Rizki Kurniawan explained in an e-mail: «Our objectives are to increase quality of life of youth who use drugs, to reduce stigma and discrimination toward street children and to improve their football skills.»

The NGO Rumah Cemara was founded in 2003 and aims to improve the quality of life for people with HIV / AIDS and drug addicts in Indonesia. Our Young Coaches now run awareness and prevention programmes for children by using grassroots football activities taught by the Alliance instructors.
