Language barriers and a lack of formal education are just a few of the challenges that refugee children face in the United States. Upon arrival in the US, these vulnerable children are placed in already overburdened classrooms within a public school system that is unable to address their educational needs.

 

Fugees Family is an organisation dedicated to working with child survivors of war. The organisation gives refugee children the opportunity to rebuild and integrate through equal opportunity to access educational resources. Football serves as the motivation, as well as an integration tool that promotes team play. Speaking the same language, the players discover their commonalities instead of focusing on their differences.

 

The Fugees Family provides children from all over the world with a reliable support structure that many of them can’t find at home because their families are also struggling to adapt to a new country, language and culture.
