WHAT WE DO
We generate real change through sport among the most vulnerable children and young people
Education and Protection, Community Action and Health and Emotional Wellbeing
Based on a new holistic programmatic approach, the Foundation works in three main areas: education and protection, community action and health and emotional welbeing through its own programs and methodologies. In all our programs we use sport as an important tool to promote social inclusion, and we have a special focus on gender equality and diversity in all forms.
WHY WE DO IT
A commitment to helping to make the world a better place
The construction of a more inclusive society, at local and international levels make the work of the Barça Foundation and its methodology using sport ever-more necessary.

Collaborations with foundations, organizations and entities are essential to achieve social changes
The relations that Barça Foundation establishes with different entities aim to improve the impact of their actions for the benefit of society and, specifically, in favor of children and young people, as well as in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nations 2030 agenda. The different collaborations are linked to their strategic lines of work: education and protection, community action and health and emotional well-being, which use sport as a tool to improve the quality of life of children and young people and their environment.
Barça Foundation defines its associations in four categories: strategic collaborators, main partnerships, institutional collaborations and other collaborations.
WHY WE DO IT
For social inclusion
REFUGEES AND MIGRANTS. There are more than 70 million refugees and displaced people in the world, 50% of whom are children (UNHCR).
SICK CHILDREN. In Catalonia there are about 2,000 children with chronic or complex diseases (Catalan Society of Paediatrics).
AGAINST SOCIAL EXCLUSION. 1 billion children in the world live at risk of social exclusion (UNICEF). In Catalonia, 1 out of 4 children are at risk of social exclusion (AROPE-UNICEF rate).
FUNCTIONAL DIVERSITY. More than 1 billion people have some form of disability, this figure represents 15% of the world's population (WHO).
WHY WE DO IT
For access to education
SCHOOLING. There are more than 260 million out-of-school children in the world and more than 25 million children that drop out of school prematurely (UNESCO).
The Barça Foundation is committed to education as a fundamental part of children's development and is therefore running a number of programs in this field.
