With this project we stimulate trauma relief on a physical level through dance, basketball, rap and boxing. Are coaches are role models from diverse cultural backgrounds that will support, inspire and motivate child refugees without a home to move and become physically and mentally healthier. Every year we try to raise money through grants and this platform to give 150-200 workshops in emergency shelters and regular shelters to child refugees.
There is not much to do in Dutch refugee camps and shelters for teenagers. The school holidays are less fun for child refugees. We want to bring as many dance, basketball, rap and boxing workshops as possible to children and teenagers in refugee camps.
Sports and dance will give child refugees the right energy and it helps them to forget their sorrows. Move Forward will give them workshops to distract their focus to something positive.
Trauma relief on a physical level is the longterm effect what we achieve by our workshops. Our coaches get trauma sensitive training sessions and we design our workshops together with trauma specialists.
