Sicily

 
 

June 2017 saw http://www.salsshoes.com/back-on-the-pitch/ in Italy thanks to http://www.helprefugees.org.uk at a tournament for young refugees, asylum seekers and migrants hosted by http://www.mediterraneoantirazzista.org ⚽️

The tournament was in Palermo and the objective of this annual event is to tackle racism through integration. Participants are young asylum seekers, refugees, vulnerable migrants and local children and young people living in disadvantaged areas of the city. These are the areas where there is most diversity in the population but very few opportunities for integration and persistently high levels of racism.

Your Sal's Shoes made the tournament even more inclusive because without trainers or football boots many wouldn't have been able to play.
