A virtual guide for experiencing Barça in first person
Bring the magic of Barça to the most vulnerable groups
The Robot project, started in 2017, allows hospitalized children or people in vulnerable situations, who cannot travel to the FC Barcelona facilities, to live the "Barça" experience through a robot with audio and video connections. The activity is carried out thanks to the company AWABOT, which has donated the robot, and is carried out with the collaboration and support of a team of volunteer members, who accompany the robot, which can be remote controlled by the participants.
Barça in first person
From the robot Pol to the robot Joyce
Until now Robot Pol, who lives in the Barça Museum, has been taking children on museum and stadium tours in the company of Foundation volunteers. Now Robot Joyce will be helping beneficiaries of different Foundation projects to interact with the women’s team and explore the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.
Robot Joyce also helps to extend the robot programme to other beneficiaries, such as female inmates at the Brians 1 Penitentiary Centre, refugees camps, children at risk in other parts of Catalonia and other socially vulnerable communities.
