Thanks to you, children of the Palestinian camps are active

A Jafra football team during training
Through the project aiming to keep the youth and children active by playing football, Jafra reached 100 children and youth in 4 Palestinian camps. Thanks to your generous donations, the football teams could keep functionning despite the calamitous situation in the country. Training tools and balls have been purchased allowing the young athletes to train like professionals.
The action means a lot to the young people and their families, it means more than just playing football. Young people and children feel valued, they have a place to spend their energy instead of going through negative coping mechanisms. Families are grateful that their young people are not left alone in the street. Jafra's football teams compete other teams which gives participants a great sense of belonging and a willingness to keep playing.
To strenghten the action and be able to mobilize more children in the medium and long term, Jafra would need additional financial assistance; football shoes and outfits are the next priorities, as well as to keep renting the football pits & offer refreshments during trainings. Wearing the right shoes will improve children's play while having a team outfit will allow participants to have a better sense of belongings and avoid mechanism of discrimination between team members.
Your contributions help the younger generations of the camps to remain positively active.
