One World, One Goal

Time and Time again, someone comes up with a great idea. Something that is missing or can be improved on.

Only, to find out what they think is, their great ideal has already been made, tried or has failed.

NJ MED is smart enough to know, other people or organizations have smart people too. Therefore, whatever, we thought of, probably already exist or has been tried.

So the goal to Educate Every Child on the Planet. And give every child an opportunity to be successful in life is nothing new.

Communication is Everything in a Relationship

FIFA, the world’s largest organization, has access to children in 209 nations.

Giving their access, they already have the platform to accomplish what we think needs to be done.

Our next step is to find a common interest, and build on that relationship.

Let’s start with we both like children. And we both hope to engage children in a healthy developmental structure. And, most importantly, we both hope this can happen in a safe and orderly manner.

It’s obvious, we both want the same thing and hope it can happen.

Defining Hope

Hope is defined in many ways. For example, hope can mean having a desire to want something to happen or be true. Or it also could mean to have a desire with expectation of obtainment or fulfillment.

In both cases, hope is wanting something to happen. That already has not happened.

Since, FIFA has established an initiative called Football for Hope. Whose main focus is to Build A Better Future, throughout the world. With social development in HIV/AIDS education, conflict resolution, gender equality, social integration of people with intellectual disabilities, peace building, youth leadership and life skills, as just some of their many objectives pursued.

Aligns them with NJ MED’s hope to ensure children on the planet have an opportunity to reach their full potential, with access to quality education in a safe and nurturing environment.

Giving those factors. NJ MED with the support of our World Top 20 Project Network of partners will work towards developing a relationship with FIFA:

BY:

  1. Requesting to become members of FIFA’s Football for Hope Initiative.
  2. Work with FIFA and their partners to use football to help build life skills.
  3. Work with FIFA to promote their Football for Hope Initiative in nations around the world, including in 46 conflict zone nations.
  4. Provide educational tools and materials to FIFA’s Football for Hope members to develop lifelong learning opportunities for all.

With this relationship, Hope will become a reality.  And the goal to Educate Every Child on the Planet will Build A Better Future. One World, One Goal.
