Below you can read about the achievements of the last LKTBF Year!
Volleycation in Greece
Marloes who returned from a special mission, our Refugees mini-series to the Netherlands shared her amazing experiences of working for months in a refugee camp in Greece.
In a 6 episode mini-series of Volleycation, we visit our Volleyball With Refugees project with former refugees and LKTBF Ambassadors Ehsan & Sheida.
Playing Volleyball with refugees can:
Promote cultural exchange and integration
Provide a fun and healthy activity for both refugees and local communities
Help build relationships and foster understanding between different groups
Provide a positive distraction from difficult circumstances
Support physical and mental well-being.
Our recent edition of the podcast series features stories about real-life issues and the people who are working to create social change. In this episode, LKTBF Founder Lesley de Jonge joins Legend Malina Terrell live from Tanzania to talk about their plans to donate volleyball gear to women in refugee camps and villages.
We’re so grateful for all of our opportunities and resources, and we hope to give back by sharing with people who need them. Volleyball is a popular sport in Tanzania with a growing community of players and fans. There are several initiatives underway to promote the sport, including local tournaments and school programs.
However, the development of volleyball infrastructure and the availability of resources, such as training and equipment, is still a challenge in some areas of the country.
