UEFA established the UEFA Foundation for Children with the aim to use football to support humanitarian projects linked to children's rights in areas such as health, education and integration.

Not limited by borders, the foundation extends its reach across Europe and to the far corners of the world where targeted projects may best be used to fulfil UEFA's mission on behalf of children. The foundation has chosen four specific areas to concentrate its work on:

  • working for and with disabled children and others who work on their behalf,
  • improving the living conditions of refugee children, as well as their dignity and respect for their fundamental rights,
  • helping children to express themselves and fulfil their potential through positive action and personal development, and
  • promoting sport for children, in particular its social and educational role.
