PlayOnside - Thailand

PlayOnside uses football as a tool for gender equality, integration and education among Burmese children and young people across the border in Thailand.

Through this sporting activity, the Norwegian-Spanish organisation gives young refugees from Burma opportunities for play and development. Football thereby serves as a bridge-builder to integrate them in the host community.
