SPORT4REFUGEES is an international initiative launched at the RESPONSIBALL Forum in 2018 to supports sports clubs and associations in their efforts to welcome people with a migration background and to integrate them into sports. The programme offers a wide range of learning materials, practical guidance, good practice examples, club coaching, and direct support of players with special attention to attract female players.
Why should a club get involved with Sport4Refugees?
I have fled to Switzerland. I am looking for a club.
The project «Sport4Refugees» is close to my heart. Therefore, I support the project and sign the Call to Action!
The SHV supports the "sport4refugees" project. Handball clubs are thus given the opportunity to easily integrate people who have fled to Switzerland into the handball community.
The Rotary Club of Bern uses its network to find a nearby club for people who have fled to Switzerland that matches their interests.
Swiss Squash provides refugees and asylum seekers - regardless of their origin - with contacts for playing and training opportunities. Often these contacts help the refugees and asylum seekers for other life situations.
The Heinz Schöffler Foundation supports people who are in need through no fault of their own. It supports the #sport4refugees project, which makes clubs in Switzerland accessible to refugees.
