In my journey to raise funding for our social cause, I traveled the South American roads towards Brazil’s World Cup 2014, in the search for soccer’s historical roots, its diversity, culture and to reconnect to my Latin American roots. Along the way, I documented legendary stadiums, personalities and demonstrate how, in many ways, soccer is being played in this continent.
With the proceeds of this project, we will be donating soccer equipment to schools in small towns in Ecuador. From soccer balls, soccer shoes, jerseys and the possibility of fixing, maintaining and why not, construct new soccer fields. Our social cause will begin in a small beach town called Puerto Engabao, Ecuador.
Our ultimate goal is to be able to promote a common bond and interest by the young in soccer throughout South America. Create awareness in youngsters who feel isolated with their dreams… to let them know that they are not alone in this journey, that there’s parallels stories throughout the continent and they can turn their dreams into a successful reality.
