FC Leveriza is a grass-roots team of economically disadvantaged youths from the squatter settlements around the Paraiso ng mga Batang Maynila public playground across from the Manila Zoo, or "pleg" as the kids refer to it. Coach Julius and Coach Edong have worked over the years to mentor the kids away from drugs and illicit behavior, developing a footballing culture in the community to address social needs. Through their hard work and unbridled dedication, many of the youths have achieved beyond their dreams, succeeding in school and attaining higher education through college scholarships.
