Summary

HSR is a growing community supporting refugees to teach, develop skills and become empowered through sport. This project is a unique synergy between Yoga and Sport with Refugees, Habibi.Works and KOIZ. Now, we offer a full weekly schedule of sports for all. Our inclusive and community-led approach allows us to adapt to the needs of our community and facilitate positive development for our project and participants. We need your support to improve and expand the scope and impact of HSR.

Challenge

There are more than 3000 refugees living in the north of Greece. Many are stuck in a legal limbo and in difficult living conditions for years with little to no access to education, to psychological support, to the society. This leaves many people seeking asylum with little agency, some citing difficulties in mental health, well-being and a sense of isolation. Additionally asylum seekers are left alone without any tools to support their own mental health.

Solution

HSR provides the platform and support for refugee athletes to lead regular sports in yoga, kickboxing, dance, volleyball, football, running, climbing and more. We support women in sport through our safe spaces project, Habibti.Trains. Our teachers and assistants are from the refugee community and receive training, support and mentorship from the wider YSR community and visiting volunteers. Sport supports mental health, and is a universal language bringing people and communities together.

Long-Term Impact

While our project focuses on refugees, we also welcome people from the local Greek community. This synergy of cultures provides a chance for social integration, friendships and support. The provision of certification, financial support and training for our teachers gives them unique career and life experience which they can use into the future. This campaign will have an impact on the lives of 300 men, women and children in refugee camps near the city of Ioannina.
