‘Barçakids’, a 360º educational experience
The initiative is born out of a virtual extension of the ‘Barçakids’ project and has the goal of adapting to the digital world, divided into three sections: activities, games and videos.
The aim is to move the educational side of things to the mobile environment to provide the project with a 360 degree educational experience.
Barçakids has a physical presence in the form of sessions with the children at the Camp Nou facilities and at schools, an extension on the web through fcbkids.cat, which allows teachers and families to work on the values with the kids in the classroom and at home; and from now on, the mobile application adds a great deal of entertainment to the projects in order to reach the children in a more natural way, while consuming content and playing.
7,000 beneficiaries in the 2015/16 campaign
Barçakids is a programme developed by the FC Barcelona Foundation aimed at children which seeks to promote and strengthen their system of values through the teaching principles of sport, play and active and inclusive participation.
During the 2015/16 campaign, 7,000 children in 56 educational centres benefited from the project.
