Through sport children repeatedly prove that they do not make any discrimination among them regarding their gender, color or religion; and this is also highlighted by the great success of the “Together in Sport” project in Ioannina, Kavala and Attica. In 2 years, more than 3,700 children – 40% of whom are children of local communities – have participated in the various sports activities implemented in collaboration with the Hellenic Olympic Committee.
Last week, representatives of the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) and the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), visited us and had the opportunity to watch the event that took place at the Olympic Athletic Center of Athens, with the participation of 130 asylum-seeking and Greek children. Ms Sofia Voultepsi, the Deputy Minister of Asylum and Migration also honored us with her presence and awarded commemorative medals to the children at the end of the event. The children all together, participated in the various activities, laughed, played and did not stop with applauding the efforts of their fellow athletes!
We warmly thank our volunteers Euthymia and Chrysa for their invaluable support!
“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.
