REWINS project partners research study to develop training for refugee women in sport

An extensive data collection and research study has taken place as part of the REWINS (REfugee Women INclusion through Sports) to find best practices for inclusion of refugee women in sport.

The research study took place to sum up the results of the data collection and best practices collated from Greece, Denmark, Italy and other countries, on the subject of how to include refugee women in host communities through sport.

The EU project is called REWINS (REfugee Women INclusion through Sports) and the aim is to promote positive attitudes towards refugee women in sports. From January to December 2020 the Fare network is part of this EU project along with partners Organization Earth, Polisportiva San Precario and Girl Power. The focus of it is on the participation of women refugees in football.

The main point is to reduce the challenges that limit refugee participation in sport activities and to act as a cornerstone for their integration within the local society. This project focuses in particular on female refugees that normally suffer from higher barriers while they try to participate in sports.
