Azerbaijan as a country is very committed to sport; they organised the first edition of the European Games, “Baku 2015”, and are a member of the International Olympic Committee. The project, led by the Ministry for Youth and Sport, came to the attention of the Real Madrid Foundation via the Azerbaijani Embassy in Spain.
Now in its third year of operations, the sporting activities have been moved to a new facility located in the Nizimi district of Baku. There are currently 86 children benefitting from the project, some of whom are refugees or those internally displaced, as well as young people from particularly deprived families.
It is supported by the Ministry for Education, who provide the facilities, and the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan (AFFA) alongside the football academy, who are actively involved in social activities and the development of the project, organising talks directed at both parents and pupils.
