Synthesis of the case study

Young refugees between 14-18 years are given the opportunity to play football with local players of the club by forming a team. Next to that, the club offers them the language courses, as well as common meals. In March, the club organised an evening with the team players and politicians, journalists and sports officials. After a friendly game between Kraainem players and refugees, the evening continued with a meal, where the refugees were able to speak out about their experiences and share their plans for the future. In total, 20 young refugees participated in the project.
