We empower refugees through taekwondo
Taekwondo contributes to well-being regardless of age, gender or ethnicity. It can be enjoyed by all, and its reach is exceptional.
Combined with an education curriculum, sport and physical activities allow for a lifelong learning and comprehensive education for children who cannot attend regular school.
Our students learn sport’s key values: teamwork, fair play, respect of the rules and others, cooperation, integrity, discipline and tolerance. Taekwondo also teaches non-violence as core value.
Fun to Do
Taekwondo is not just a martial art or Olympic sport. It is an enjoyable activity for people regardless of age, gender, color or culture.
Something to Do
Given the dearth of recreational facilities in many refugee camps, taekwondo provides something to wake up for and look forward to.
Easy to Do
Taekwondo requires minimal equipment – no nets, no balls, no courts just the human body. Healthy play for children and a multi-dimensional exercise for adults
Important to Do
Taekwondo’s benefits extend beyond the physical. The sport teaches manners, perseverance and self-control, while its sparring component demands courage.
