ABOUT DELTA CULTURA
Delta Cultura’s main focus is education. It seeks to encourage youth and to teach them value of education. Different methods of motivating youths are implemented such as enrolling underprivileged children into schools and conducting homework and after school classes. Many youth do not attend formal schooling due to lack of funds by their parents. Football is perceived as medium where youth can alleviate poverty and bring social changes in their lives and community at large and as such the organisation also hosts a football tournament and trains coaches.
