Beneficiaries

The Ritsona camp currently houses a population of approximately 900 people. All residents of the Ritsona camp aged three to 28 are eligible and encouraged to participate daily in Lighthouse Relief’s programmes. Based on the experience of the pilot project, however, for sports activities Lighthouse Relief targets children and young people aged six to 17, 80% male and 20% female. Through the recent volleyball and tennis activities, Lighthouse Relief has managed to engage a larger number of young girls. Volleyball is also open to young adults and the setting is more informal than the football trainings.
