This online course was developed by Terre des hommes, within the "Keeping Children Safe in Sports" project. The project aims to promote child safeguarding in sports and summer camp settings in Romania and Greece, however, this knowledge can be applied in all other sport settings.
The Guide was produced in the framework of the "Keeping Children Safe in Sports" project. Its aim is to document the process of how sports organisations and summer camps can introduce and successfully implement child safeguarding policies within their organisations. The publication is based on interviews with Romanian and Greek professionals, who went through this process in the project.
The European week of sports celebrates its 5th edition this year; and 2019 brings a success story – after a long struggle with documentation, the first refugee in Greece got the official authorisation to play professional football. However, many of the 30,000 young refugees are experiencing disconnection from loved ones and have been exposed to traumatic experiences. They struggle to access to services such as healthcare and education.
