Amidst the recent surge of refugees to the German federal states of Berlin and Brandenburg, the ever-present obstacle of integration has hindered many newcomers’ opportunity for inclusion.

 

In 2012, CHAMPIONS ohne GRENZEN (CHoG) was founded to provide support for new arrivals to Germany, as well as establish a welcoming and lasting culture of diversity.

 

CHoG promotes exchange and communication and identifies fields in refugee policies which are often overlooked.  Football provides an excellent means of affirmative action for the sustainable desegregation of any marginalised social group.

 

CHoG holds weekly football practices with young people who would otherwise have difficulty gaining access to football sessions in Germany.

 

These training sessions are free and open to any gender and followed by voluntary consulting sessions, or a “tea circle,” where participants have the opportunity to receive help and advice on navigating life in their new country.
