Mission & vision

Every child deserves a healthy future. The Johan Cruyff Foundation helps children move up by being active; especially those children for whom being active is not always easy. Sport and games are an important part of a child's proper, healthy development. It gets them fit, teaches them to interact, and helps their personal development. The Foundation accomplishes this through Cruyff Courts, Schoolyard14, and sports projects for children with a disability in the Netherlands, Spain and abroad. It is important to help children around the world stay as healthy as possible and work together to help them thrive in our complex society. 

We want to:

  • Help children become healthier
  • Support the liveability
  • Give children more self-confidence
  • Let everyone participate
