Shakira was also recently named an ambassador of 1GOAL, adding her voice to the campaign's call that the lasting legacy of this year's FIFA World Cup be that every child can exercise their right to an education. 1GOAL is supported by some of the biggest names in the global football community. I´ve linked the name to the webpage in English but if you choose the Spanish version, I´m sure you´ll recognise some of the footballers there.
1GOAL is not the only organization that gets together European football (=soccer)and education, PLAY4AFRICA is another initiative, this time a Spanish one, which promotes using football as a vehicle for achieving personal development and improving self esteem. This is the video that represents their campaign.
