Presentation of the FutbolNet Program by Barça Foundation
13 July 2018

The SNF is collaborating with the Barça Foundation for the implementation of sports and education programs in refugee sites and local hosting communities that follow the FutbolNet methodology. The specific methodology uses sports as a means to promote peace, tolerance and understanding and to ultimately foster social inclusion and integration, through education on values and reflection tools that stimulate children and young people.

More than 3,000 children and teenagers are the beneficiaries of the program being implemented in Greece, Italy and Lebanon, with the SNF’s support. Through their participation in football games and training sessions, children learn how to cooperate with their peers, to respect the rules and how to use dialogue as a means to prevent and solve conflicts.
