Philippine Football needs more evenings such as these to further develop the sport in the country.

More than recreation, football clearly works as an intervention tool for community development —This was the key take-away in the Starbuck’s Coffee Dialogues, which featured Dream Big Pilipinas FA, the Philippine Homeless Worldcup Team, and The Futkaleros.

Three very different organizations, sat side by side, sharing how football has been transforming lives for years, but has gone relatively unnoticed. All 3 organizations believe that the time has come for football, for the nation to take notice and to share in the stand.

Through the Dialogues, the 3 groups received media mileage from major broadsheets, and commitments from fellow development groups and LGUs.
