Dribbles, passes, goals and many smiles were in abundance during the training that took place between refugee children and young athletes from the K14 team of the football club of AO Kavala.
A total of 36 children participated in the joint training under the close guidance of the coaches who shared the secrets of football, but also under the watchful eye of the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Sports of the city of Kavala, as well as the parents of the children who watched by the stands.
At the end of the event, medals were awarded to all the children along with a commemorative diploma for their participation, while four lucky children, won a soccer ball after a draw.
The event took place in the framework of the “Together in Sport” project with the support of the Municipality of Kavala and AO Kavala who embraced this whole effort to bring the children of the local community closer to the children hosted in the camp.
“Together in Sport”, initiated and co-funded by the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees, is implemented by METAdrasi in cooperation with the Hellenic Olympic Committee, the German Olympic Sports Confederation and the participation of municipalities all over Greece. The project is co-funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF).
