We believe in a society where everyone belongs, through sport

Our Mission

We are shaping a movement to ensure young people affected by displacement thrive through safe sport

Sport has the power to have the most incredible impact on young lives.​ We are uniting leaders, businesses, coaches and young refugees from across the world to create a team with purpose, a team like no other.

We all share one goal – for displaced young people to find belonging through sport, and shape their own futures, their way.​

This is a team like no other
This is a team like no other

This is a team like no other

Why? Because on this team, displaced young people rebuild their lives. Through sport, and the Olympic spirit, they find belonging. Develop life skills. And shape their own futures.
