UEFA Foundation for Children
2016.06.15. – 2017.06.14.
It was with the support of the UEFA Foundation for Children Refugee Support Programme that we, in June 2016, launched our 12-month-long football program in a home for unattended refugee children. Apart from our weekly open and closed trainings our refugee players participated in our Fair Play Football Roadshow championships and other domestic and international events of ours in great numbers. Participants were supported by our social workers in their educational, housing, jobseeking, immigration and other problems.
IRIS – Innovative Learning Resources to Foster Equal Participation in Grassroots Sports, Dealing with Discrimination, Racism and Violence Incidents
2015.01.01. – 2016.12.31.
Our IRIS project closed in December 2016. In this project partners were developing innovative learning tools that help the prevention of violence and discrimination occurring in grassroots and school sports primarily through the training of P.E. teachers and coaches. The main outcome of the project is publicly accessible online training platform in 6 languages which is available at iris-sport.eu/hu/. The training material helps teachers and coaches in the prevention, timely identification and tackling of discrimination, racism and violence.
Besides, we collected good practices, which can be used in P.E. classes and trainings and a sensitizing comic-book and game was also developed for children.
The cartoon spot, which was made on the commission of our association, can be viewed here:
The closing conference and last partner meeting of the project was organised by our association at John Wesley Theological College in Budapest.
The project was funded by Erasmus+.
