Unite People through Sports

Unite People through Sports people brings young refugees and locals together through sporting activities.

Unite People through Sports people brings young refugees and locals together through open sport activities and reaches the participants in schools and refugee accommodation centres. The project allows its participants to engage in different sports and educational programmes, thus giving young refugees a sense of belonging. 

Through sports such as football and cricket, Unite People further promotes social skills of discipline, self-confidence, determination and independence, and increases the society’s acceptance of the needs and often traumatizing experiences of the refugee minors. Ultimately, the project aims to facilitate the participants’ paths into club sports, which would further their integration into society.
