Integration through soccer 

There are various ways to integrate refugees in Germany. One good example is the “Kickwinkel” project, which was established by the Fritz Henkel Stiftung foundation together with the local association Düsseldorfer Jonges, the insurance companies ERGO and ARAG SE, the communication agency Kunst und Kollegen and the sports club DJK Agon 08 in spring 2016. Twice a week, underage refugees who came to Germany without parents or guardians can train at the artificial turf field in Düsseldorf Mörsenbroich. “It’s all about having fun”, says coach Manfred Novacek. The soccer training supports social interaction and intercultural exchange.
