Andreas’ project uses basketball to address issues of racism, xenophobia and social exclusion in Cypriot elementary schools with high numbers of non-native language speakers. The programme uses appearances by foreign basketball stars to teach the children about cultural acceptance and social inclusion through sport. It also includes a mini-tournament, featuring mixed teams of Greek and other native language speakers. This is followed by a medal award ceremony and celebration.
