PLAY FOR GOAL 4
EQUALITY EDUCATION

WHAT’S THE GOAL?

Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

“In some parts of the world, students are going to school every day. It’s their normal life. But in other parts of the world, we are starving for education… it’s like a precious gift. It’s like a diamond…” – Malala Yousafzai

ABC Dribble

by Becca Todd, United Kingdom

Description of the game
  • How a variety of things are needed for a quality education.
  • Cones represent education resources such as books, pencils and computers etc.
  • Can work with either just running into the middle, or dribbling balls simultaneously.
How To Play
  • Divide players into two teams.
  • Place cones etc in the middle of the pitch.
  • When the coach says go, the teams have to race one by one to the middle.
  • The one team that gets more educational resources gets a higher education.





  • Add defenders which represent barriers to education. The defenders have to tag the players to stop them getting items from the middle.
  • Players have to dribble balls to the middle.
  • Before players can reach for a cone, they have to jump from one foot to the other and touch the ball x times.

Organisation

  • Players: Any number divided into equal teams for a relay.
  • Area: Any size that’s a sufficient distance to run races into the middle.
  • Materials: Cones, bibs etc. that can represent educational resources.
FOOTBALL TIPS
  • Dribble the ball as fast as you can with lots of touches on the ball to keep control. The faster you go, the more chances your team will have to grab cones from the middle.
  • Use both feet for a more balanced dribbling technique- using the outside of the foot is more natural to match your running gait.
  • Practice the toe taps challenge beforehand so that you can do it really quickly in the game and beat the other teams!
  • Use a variety of turns and tricks to improve your dribbling skills.

What is quality education?

by Becca Todd, United Kingdom

Feel Good and Becca Todd have team up with us to find out what the Global Goals are and talk about what the girls think is quality education and how we can achieve Goal 2 No Poverty.

They talked and played for 

  • No Poverty
  • Quality Education 

After the games they all picked a goal they cares most about. 

Create GAME SITUATION

There are so many great ways to create a game. Allow the players to be quite creative with this by introducing the goal at the beginning of the match and asking them how this could be included:  Do one team have a big goal and the other a small. Do everybody play with a glas of water or change a rule every minute. 

A simple way to bring in the Global Goals when playing a match, is that every time a team scores or make a save, or during a water break they can double their points or get a point by stating a Global Goal and what they could do to help promote this in their community. Easiest to play small side games with 3-6 players, so they can hear each other.

You can always have several games going at the same time. There are some rule ideas under Goal 17.
