Tico Tico

The Tico Tico programme was established by Mozambique’s most famous former national and international footballer Manuel José Bucuane. Known locally as Tico Tico, he was the country’s most capped player and a prolific goal scorer. The programme works with marginalised children Boane, Maputo Province of Mozambique, to enrich their lives by training coaches who then provide safe spaces for children to play sport, access to education and vital life skills.
