Mission statement

Our aim is to raise awareness concerning the role of sports in social inclusion, to promote the elimination of discrimination based on ethnicity and social disadvantage in the field of sport, to achieve better access for socially-disadvantaged Roma to mass and competitive sports, as well as to publicise the related opportunities provided by the European integration process in general and the European Framework for National Roma Inclusion Policies in specific. This project aims at contributing to supporting and providing a European basic framework for breaking out of poverty through sports, promoting a healthy lifestyle, strengthening a positive identity among marginalised communities, facilitating crime prevention and the prevention of victimisation, as well as to positively influence the attitudes of football fans towards minorities and marginalised people.
