The Venda Cup is a football tournament organized by the Bengaluru-based NGO Fourthwave Foundation, aimed at keeping vulnerable youth away from drugs.


The boys and girls aged under 18, have been selected from four districts in Kerala identified as prone to drug use. The competition will be held on the four-a-side international slum soccer model, with fair play being an important component.


The Foundation’s Project Venda, which was launched six years ago, aims to actively engage vulnerable youngsters in sports and activities of interest to them. It has been recognized by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime as one of the best practices in working with children and young adults.
