Street Soccer Barcelona (SSB) is a non-profit association committed to the fight against the exclusion of people who are houseless or
in other situations at risk of social exclusion and utilizes football as a tool to promote inclusion.
We seek to improve the quality of life of people and, at the same time, involve the general population in this integration process in order to achieve a more cohesive society.
We currently have two Community Football Spaces where we offer free training for those who need it the most. We work directly with referrals from entities, but, due to lack of resources, we are not being able to meet all the demand that contacts us.
We really need to open a third day of weekly training so that no one is left out!
Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign
We not only play football, but we organize recreational activities to work on cohesion, learn and improve the language and create a space of identity and shelter within the team.
In collaboration with social entities:
Working through referrals allows us to have a better knowledge of the situation of each participant and helps us understand them better and attend to the different needs of those who participate.
👉 Main objectives:
We use the positive values of football to:
- Empower and improve people's quality of life
- Promote social cohesion
- Breaking prejudices, stereotypes and stigmatization
- Build a sense of belonging
- Promote healthy routines
Why this is important
👉 For whom?
We want to open a 3 day of practice for young migrants who have recently arrived to Barcelona unaccompanied. Since 2005, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of people who try to arrive, risking their lives on many occasions, to Spanish and European territory through the so-called southern border.
Faced with the emergency situation on the southern border, various social organizations and public institutions respond with humanitarian attention to people who have just arrived in the territory of the State. Street Soccer Barcelona collaborates directly with referrals from these organizations to offer a sports program for those who need it most.
Most of the people are in conditions of great vulnerability and have suffered great suffering during their journey. It is extremely important for them to participate in collective activities, play sports and find a space of respite where they can clear their minds, enjoy themselves, make new friends and find a place of refuge amidst so much uncertainty.
Sport is a universal right and the practice of a team sport transforms lives. Soccer has the ability to transmit positive values such as teamwork, camaraderie, cooperation, cohesion, a sense of belonging, tolerance, sportsmanship or respect for others, which are then translated into all aspects of life.
Football is a universal sport, and, in a context of such diversity of nationalities, cultures and languages, it is the perfect tool to connect while having fun and enjoying together.
Despite being a young association (founded in June 2018), in recent years we have had great growth due to the great demand for participation. Currently Street Soccer Barcelona offers 2 Community Soccer Spaces and also a team competing in the Barcelona School Council Sports League. In 2019 we have had more than 2348 assists.
The association currently has 2 people working part-time + a varied team of volunteers very committed to the project (coaches, photographers, athletes, accountants, etc).
