In brief

 

Kicken ohne Grenzen coaches adolescents in various teams from over ten different nations in weekly training units and sessions. The initiative aims to support young people in developing soft-skills like self-confidence, teamwork, leadership skills or resilience, which help the beneficiaries to get access to the educational system or to find a job.

Additionally,  Kicken ohne Grenzen also equips young people with skills they can use to organise own projects and programmes in their communities or in (partner) schools, so participants can actively impact their social environment and act as role-models for other adolescents.

Problem to be tackled
