The Family Council is delighted to announce its collaboration with the Association whatSport.
The collaboration will cover media and communications backing, strategic workshops, impact data collection, and the financial support of the Association’s “La République des Sports” programme.
This programme offers young migrants and local young people for whom sport has been recommended as a way to overcome demanding or challenging situations the opportunity to interact and learn from each other through sports activities and camps, facilitating their integration and general wellbeing, as well as the development of personal and professional skills.
As part of its support to La République des Sports programme, the Foundation will sponsor ten spots at its multi-sport summer camp in Fiesch (VS) and another ten spots for their winter camp in Vallée de Joux (VD). Members of the Family Council will also volunteer as associate coaches during the summer camp.
“whatSport and the “La République des Sports” programme are pleased and honoured to be supported by ViaTalenta Foundation and its family. We believe that the course of a young life, no matter how challenging or demanding it may be, can be fostered, nourished and enhanced through sports that value resilience and social cohesion.”
Mattia Piffaretti, President, Association whatSport
“This collaboration reflects ViaTalenta Foundation’s commitment to sport as a way to enhance understanding, cooperation, team play and respect for others. We are pleased to be engaging with the team at “La République des Sports” to deliver a memorable and educational experience to all participants.”
