EWAV Works joins football world!!

Youngsters acorss London will join some of football’s leading lights this month by taking part in Kick It Outs’ One Game One Community weeks of action.

EWAV Works has been awarded a One Game, One Community award from Kick It Out, football’s equality and inclusion campaign, and the Football Foundation, the UK’s largest sports charity.

One Game, One Community weeks of action, a 12-day, high visibility stand against discrimination and for equality taking place from 15 - 27 October. The money will fund The Veni, Vici, Vidi Experiment with young children aged between 8 - 11 years. The young people will work in ten sessions to develop an animated production based on sports, race, and bullying amongst young people. These animations will be showcased round primary schools in London as a motivational educational tool for those in sports and hoping to develop a career in sports.

The project is part of 1000 events taking place across the country during October.

Grants have been awarded to groups in some of the most deprived areas of the country to organise events and activities as part of the initiative. The activities being supported include youth forums, exhibitions, educational programmes and anti-racism themed football tournaments.

Piara Powar, Director for Kick It Out, said

“This money will help community groups of all shapes and sizes deliver their own unique One Game, One Community flavour to the weeks of action.

“This is a fantastic project and we're delighted to fund one with such a strong message."

Paul Thorogood, Chief Executive of the Football Foundation, said:
“We are delighted that EWAV Work has been successful in securing this funding from the Football Foundation and Kick It Out.
