Our areas of activity
Inclusion and participation in society
To this end, we use the enormous potential offered by play and sport to bring people together, because sport unites people, promotes cooperation and creates common ground. The shared sporting experience provides the opportunity for children and young people, with and without disabilities and/or from different cultural backgrounds to meet, discover their differences and similarities, dismantle prejudice and build understanding and tolerance.
Education and health
Knowledge is power, as a well-known saying goes. For us at FIM however, knowledge is more synonymous with opportunity because only those with education and knowledge have the opportunity to understand and assess their own situation – and to change it for the better. In addition to social and economic improvement, increased knowledge also leads to better health because thanks to their new knowledge people are in a position to make sound and effective life decisions.
Inclusive sports programmes
Sadly, nowhere near everyone has equal access to sport. At FIM, we want to give EVERYONE access to sporting activities through our sports programmes, whatever their nationality, social class, religious conviction, way of thinking, sex, cultural identity, age or abilities.
Through our programmes in developing countries, we want to provide better access to education via football and thus give underprivileged people the prospect of better future and career opportunities, better health and integration.
We run a university-level seminar which prepares participants for missions in sports-related social-aid projects in developing countries. We also offer training programmes for football coaches who want to train people with disabilities. In addition, we run educational programmes at schools, sports clubs or companies to raise public awareness about inclusion.
Consultancy & networking
Expertise, know-how and appropriate resources are the foundations of a sustainable and efficient implementation of our projects – and are therefore essential for achieving our goals. We achieve the requirements for this by, for example, consulting and networking with important players in business, sport and politics, with the aim of initiating joint projects.
