Sport for Refugees Kick Off Meeting

During the last week of November 2022, the partners for this project gathered together to kick start an initiative focused on inclusion of refugees and youth from a migrant background. The meeting took place in Suceava, Romania over two days.

After familiarising ourselves with the sport facilities and sport programmes ran by Liceul cu Program Sportiv Suceava, the partners clarified tasks and responsibilities for the duration of the project.

As a specialist in using Sport for learning, Mundus Bulgaria will be responsible for organising a learning and training course for the duration of 5 days (LTTA). This course will be targeted at youth workers from every partner’s country and its objective is to increase the professional qualification of youth workers when working with refugees and migrants / migrant descendants.

There are local events to be carried out by every partner leading up to a big sporting occasion where the youth workers who have undertaken the LTTA and a group of refugees will be empowered to carry on sporting activities on a regular basis.

All partners are positive for the impact of this project as we are combining sport expertise with knowledge and experience from working with our refugees and youth workers.
