Laliga has started a socio-educational program at the Zahari refugee camp through its sports project department and LaLiga Foundation.
The initiative wishes to uplift the quality of life of the young refugees using the sport to impart positive values and benefits of the game.
Two LaLiga specialists, Javier Garcia and Izzat Jandalli were shifted to the camp around a year ago. Their integration and daily work within the refugee camps have seen them lead various sporting and socio-educational activities that are promoting a favorable environment of communal living, integration and adaption amongst the participants and their families.
Javier Tebas, the president of LaLiga commented, “The transmission of values and through all our football projects is vital and this initiative is a great example. Together with AFDP and the involvement of the 33 participating clubs, I am positive that we will achieve our goals and improve the quality of life through the sport for more than 700 children involved in our project.”
