Action for Change Foundation (ACF)


Action for change foundation (ACF) acts in the disadvantaged district of Bairo Pite in Dili, the capital of Timor Leste.


It works with local youngsters, members of violent martial arts gangs, to encourage them to practice organized sport that is supervised and nonviolent.


By coaching them in taekwondo, judo, karate and team sports, ACF teaches these destabilized youngsters self-respect, respect for others, and thereby socializes them and integrates them into the community.


Peace and Sport supports the foundation and helps to diversify the sports activities on offer.
