The Barça Foundation and Nike continue their work for social inclusion and sport in Barcelona
For the third season in a row, Nike is supporting the Barça Foundation's social inclusion programme in the city of Barcelona, aimed at children and young people at risk of social exclusion. The Made to Play project promotes physical activity and play, with a special focus on encouraging women's participation in all activities.
This season, more than 200 children and youngsters have taken part in weekly extracurricular activities run by the Barça Foundation's educational team. Based on the FutbolNet methodology, the activities turn sport, play and physical activity into a means of social integration.
The activities in this third consecutive year have been carried out in different social and educational centres: 2 secondary schools, 4 open centres, and a primary school in seven neighbourhoods in the city of Barcelona.
The project aims to destigmatise groups at risk of exclusion, build bonds, encourage the development of their skills and competencies and serve as a preventive influence in the community.
