Through this initiative, the Foundation relies primarily on the integrative and inclusive powers of sport to address the challenges faced by the most vulnerable youth in the context of the VIDOC-19 pandemic. For Norman Darmanin Demajo, member of the Foundation’s Board, “the Foundation believes that the current pandemic is an additional reason to continue supporting through soccer”.
Nearly 50% of the budget is allocated to non-governmental organizations based in Europe, the continent most affected by the virus. In Africa, 16 laureates (29%) were selected, including structures whose projects have already been highlighted on the Sport en Commun platform, such as Libre Vue, RightToPlay and Kick4Life.
