Today, on 21 March on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the results of "Un calcio al Razzismo" have been published.
"Un calcio al Razzismo" - IX Edition 2018-2019
The panel in charge of the evaluation of the candidacies of the IX edition of "UN CALCIO AL RAZZISMO" 2018-2019, composed of representatives of the Centre for UNESCO of Turin and of Juventus, announced the following winners:
Announcement A - Voluntary associations - ONLUS operating in the Piedmont Region and registered in the Regional Volunteer Registry
ASSOCIAZIONE COMENIO - PROGETTO “Gara oltre il confine”
The project aims to promote the integration between children and youngsters who live in the same region but who have different backgrounds and countries of origin. They offer opportunities for educational meetings between children and parents of foreign origin, as well as provide opportunities for informal sessions between Italian and foreign families.
The project intends to implement daily, periodic and special activities focused on sport - e.g. basketball, five-a-side football, volleyball tournaments, outings in the Piedmont area etc. - aimed at overcoming the confines of solitude through the formation of a community.
The recipients are 300 children and youngsters, both Italian and foreign, between the ages of 6-25 years old and 15 unaccompanied minors; the indirect recipients are 100 Italian and foreign families, of which 60 are in situations of need.
Award B - Voluntary associations - ONLUS operating in Italy and registered in the Regional Register of Volunteers of reference
ASSOCIAZIONE ALTROPALLONE ASD ONLUS - PROGETTO “NO BORDER LEAGUE – LA PERIFERIA RESILIENTE”
The project involves the construction of the first amateur women's football championship in the suburbs of Milan. The objective is to use sport as an inclusive practice and non-formal educational methodology in the most vulnerable areas of the Milan metropolitan area.
The road to equal opportunities in the world of sport is still long and can start from here, from the suburbs, pushing out the true enemy of racism.
The championship will consist of teams of five girls with particular attention on the multi-ethnic component, with the matches taking place on sports fields located in the outskirts of Milan.
The organisation of the championship will therefore create a new outlook for the involvement of migrant women in the activities of the city in which they live. The goal is to be able to involve beneficiaries who enjoy the sports project and become active in ensuring the continuation of the project in the years to follow, becoming the reference point for migrant women's sport against all discrimination.
