Connecting through sports
When refugees flee their home, they leave everything behind: family, friends, belongings. Waiting to return home in safety or be resettled can take years and in the meantime, refugees wait. Education and employment are hard to find, frustration sets in and the talent and potential of young people is wasted.
Sports cannot solve all these problems, but they can help connect refugees and locals living in these new communities and build bridges across borders.
This is what KLABU stands for: not to accept wasted lives but instead help young refugees cope and connect on their way to a better future.
With the sales of their KLABU shirts and sportswear, they fund the building of sport centres in refugee camps.
KLABU is our partner since 2019.
