Barca Foundation (FC Barcelona) Football Program

Projects - Current
Being far from home is difficult for everyone, especially children. We want every child who migrates to Lesvos to have a safe environment in which their hopes and dreams can flourish. As part of our wish to preserve hopes and dreams, we have created an opportunity for boys and girls to run around, have fun, and smile. This opportunity is the Barca Foundation Sports Program. 

“Football (FutbolNET session) is for me like a school where you are teaching us how to be a good person” - 8 year-old boy on Lesvos

The program is facilities by our coaches, who are both volunteers and refugees, and each week, they bring something more than just a ball to the field. The coaches - with the help of the FutbolNET methodology provided by Barca Foundation -offer children life-scenario lessons in order to teach values such as respect, teamwork, effort, ambition and humility through a variety of sports like football, basketball, handball, and volleyball. Some of the most important effects that this program is giving are: to be a moral and honest person, to respect the environment and to implement gender equality.
