Bulgaria is the last one in EU and Europe by regularly sporting people and on first place by obesity, cigarettes, drugs, sexual relations, alcohol in the age 13-18. Thus many youths all over Bulgaria are in real danger of health problems, social exclusion, addictions, criminal acts, aggression, depression... Thus many are forced to migrate away from their families, city or country. Therefore different approaches to influence these individuals and to motivate them are desperately needed.


Sport is not only a healthy necessity but also a social alternative to preventing many of the above-mentioned risks; sport is also a social and well-being opportunity. Through our sport-social activities and care, we contribute to solving these individual and public problems. By providing the youths with new knowledge, information, capabilities, and chances to apply their skills, we will support their sustainable social integration. Youth potential will produce positive results for the society.

Long-Term Impact

Participants will have completely new social life alternative and chances to express themselves and develop their health, personal and sports potentials. Considering that sport is the best tool to fight a wide variety of important personal and 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 behavior, etc.
