Here we have compiled good examples of how clubs all around Sweden are working to make more football dreams come true. Maybe something to be inspired by!
Clubs that have been given funding from Alla är olika – olika är bra
Thanks to your dedication and our fundraising, we have been able to collect and distribute more than SEK 8.5 million to clubs that work actively for a better football Sweden. These are some of those clubs.
IK Uppsala Fotboll - FSR Coach (Football Social Responsibility)
The IK Uppsala Fotboll project FSR Coach is trying to level the playing field to make sure more girls and women stay longer in football and i.e. become coaches. The project is a combination course (FSR) which also includes a value course based on the Ronja model.
Eskilstuna United - Ronjabollen
Ronjabollen is an equality and integration project that works to strengthen young girls who live and reside in poorer areas. The aim of the project is to strengthen the self-esteem and self-worth in young girls between the age 8 to 15, to make them confident enough to make their own decisions in life, and to find a suitable sport club that can give their spare time more meaning. The project was started in 2018 by TRIS – Tjejers Rätt i Samhället (Girl’s Rights In Society) from Uppsala, but it was initiated and established in Eskilstuna. The project is unique in the way that it combines physical activity with exercises on value, which helps make a positive difference for girls who are socially vulnerable. The ambition is to expand the project in order to have more girls join and fill their spare time with more meaning.
Barkarö SK - Girl Initiative
The Girl Initiative project aims to make football more interesting for girls and to build bridges between the suburbs of Västerås (Barkarö and Bäckby). The idea for the Girl Initiative is to act as a catalyst to make girls feel comfortable enough to play football, which in will integrate them into club life and increase the understanding between different cultures.
Borens IK - Unstoppable
The project “Unstoppable” was started by Borens IK and aims to create a new generation of girls who dare break the glass ceiling and stand up for themselves. The vision is also for the project to help create more equality within the club (and in turn create a more equal society), where the aim is to change current norms and attitudes in girl’s and women’s football. Thanks to the funding from Everyone is different – different is good (Alla är olika – olika är bra), Borens IK can continue to create a better environment for girls in football.
Borås AIK - The future is futsal
One of the clubs that received funding last year is Borås AIK, for its project “Futsal for all”. The projects aims to promote the girls and further strengthen girl’s and women’s football. Thanks to the financial support from Everyone is different – different is good (Alla är olika – olika är bra), Borås AIK can offer girls better training and development and give them the same opportunities as the boys. The aim is to eventually create an elite team in Borås that can establish itself in RFL.
Torp GoIF - With life as a playing field
TORP GoIF received financial funding for its equality project “With life as a playing field”, which actively works to make football more inclusive for all.
