Challenge

Many youths in Sofia are in real danger of health problems, social exclusion, addictions, criminal acts... They don't have society and family support, information and opportunity to build their own culture in a healthy environment. Family, school, internet - where they spend the majority of their time, are very often incapable of building adequate health and social behavioral models. Therefore different approaches to influence these individuals and to motivate them are desperately needed.

Solution

Sport is not only a healthy necessity but also a social alternative to preventing many risks - social exclusion, health problems, aggression, lack of tolerance; sport is a social and well-being opportunity. Through our sport-social activities and care we contribute to solving these individual and public problems. To train, play, teach and socialize through 5 various sports - this is our gift for the youths; adults and youths play together in charity events in support of personal causes.

Long-Term Impact

Particpants have completely new social life alternative and chances to express themselves and develop their health, personal and sport potentials. Considering that sport is the best tool to fight a wide variety of important social problems, the project certainly has the potential to improve participants' health status, social inclusion options, physical culture, mental stability, self-esteem, capabilities for teamwork, anti-discrimination practices, social behaviour, etc.
