Lilian Thuram Foundation: Together for education and tolerance
A COMMON GOAL
Education against racist prejudice on and off the pitch
The Lilian Thuram Foundation was established in 2008 to ensure non-xenophobic education and the dismantling of racist prejudices. The alliance with the Barça Foundation involves the shared goal of eradicating racist behaviour on and off the pitch.
Among the many activities, Lilian Thuram participated in the presentation of the Evaluation Report of the Refugee Program in Lebanon, Italy and Greece and visited different refugee camps in Lebanon and Greece. He also visited an inclusion program that uses the Barça Foundation's own methodology, where unaccompanied minors are living without adult role models, and took part in an event organized by the Government of Catalonia's General Directorate of Child and Adolescent Care, where cases of successful insertion of minors under or formerly under the organisation's guardianship were presented.
The Barça Foundation shows that it is not only football that is important to the club, and uses its name as a platform to change society
This agreement will help us to improve our capacity to act on issues such as racism, sexism and homophobia
