Difference Makers Idea Challenge & Kicking Out Child Abuse
by No Longer Silenced Movement
Months ago, the idea of a 1 day soccer tournament to benefit child abuse awareness and empower survivors came into play. A sport gives a child a fun activity to be passionate about, even when they feel alone, and their loved ones are against them. Soccer is simple because it requires little equipment to practice, great for a child who needs a hobby that they can even do alone if they have to, practice kicks against the wall, or foot skills in their living room, it’s the most universal sport.
At a college in Massachusetts, we’re pitching our idea in the Difference Makers Idea Challenge for current students and alumni. The Difference Makers Idea challenge consisting of educational workshops, help a team with an innovative idea to plan, organize, and find resources for their solution; A challenge that can help others make a positive change in the world.
Tomorrow is our last workshop, with a team meeting to follow, we’re about halfway through the program and challenge, and have a long road ahead, but we’re excited to share some of our projects with you.
