Online PR News – 06-January-2021 – Barcelona – 2 Clubs, 2 Neighborhoods, 1 Dream project were a success as a charity event. More than half a ton of disused sports equipment in Europe was collected to give it a new life in Burkina Faso. In addition to the €2,250 via crowdfunding for shipping it.

But we did not expect is the post-event international impact. The action throughout the year 2020 has already awarded more than 6 worldwide statuettes. From Moscow to Portland passing through Barcelona, the original city of the idea:

All this recognition has a double benefit: add up the visibility of the problematic, and awareness-raising to combat it. In addition to renewed forces for a second edition. Since once traveled for the shipping of the pieces of equipment, new needs are detected, such as a mode of local transport for the players.

From these lines, we want to thank the selfless collaboration of institutions, brands, and especially volunteers for their work and support. Without them, it would not have been possible.
