YOU BUY ONE, WE GIFT ONE.
For every book bought, we will donate a copy to one of our participants and schools that we work with across the UK.
(Our educational programmes tap into a young person’s passion for football to ensure they finish school with skills and grades to make a successful transition in adulthood.)
2020 BEYOND LOCKDOWN
During lockdown, Football Beyond Borders (FBB) travelled the country, meeting young people outside their homes to discover the impact that the lack of school was having. The result is a stunning photographic record of our nation’s school children through this dramatic period.
This publication showcases the incredible potential and positivity of young people; alongside their realisation of what school means to them – that school is not just about education and learning but, crucially, it is about socialising with friends and a sense of connection.
WHY SHOULD YOU SUPPORT FBB?
Football Beyond Borders is an award-winning charity that supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who are passionate about football but disengaged at school.
For us, the power of the relationships our young people have with friends and teachers shines through; together with the realisation that so much of their personal growth as individuals takes place inside the classrooms and playgrounds.
At a time when the demand for our work is greater than ever, young people need more support. The publication of the book launches a national campaign to highlight why children missing school is a critical issue for society.
