We are a dedicated community with a passion for 'inclusion' in sport.

Our passion is to implement a support mechanism for migrant African footballers to include them in the host country and sport industry through the development of tailer-made curriculum and training modules for migrant footballers to overcome their lack of information.

Social integration

Social integration is just one of the benefits of sport to help for a better society. As the European Commission states sport also has a vital role for the inter-cultural dialogue. (p.7, EC) As immigrant athletes are from various backgrounds with different cultures, they potentially have a very positive effect on the cultural wealth of the European Union. The Commission’s “White Paper” is not the only guide to promote sports for social inclusion.
