In brief

The football pilot project, funded by The SOL Foundation, commenced in mid September 2018, and lasted for three months, with the last training session taking place in December. Based on the lessons learned the objective is to continue what has been achieved so far and further expand, supporting tennis and volleyball sessions, which are currently volunteer-led, in addition to football and increasing the number of sessions.

Problem to be tackled

Lighthouse Relief’s objective specifically with this project is to continue and advance on-going psychosocial support by providing a structured opportunity for peer to peer support, social interaction, learning and play to children and youth living in the Ritsona camp.
