The Black Pearls globalization

Today there are more than 25.4 million refugees around the world. They are forced to leave their countries of origin for reasons of persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, political opinion and social groups. We speak of families who face violations of their human rights every day but do not rest in the pursuit of a dignified life.

The Black Pearls Football Academy believes that sport is an effective tool for social inclusion, equality, education, and professional growth. For this, we work with international partnership that allow us to create opportunities for refugees in different parts of the world and make them the protagonists of their own lives.
