Asylum United

Global Goal 5 - Gender Equality

 

Team Asylum United are providing women in Danish asylum centers with empowerment and strength through soccer.

Asylum United is an organization which brings the power of soccer to women staying at Asylum Centers in Denmark which originally grew out of Eir Soccer. They are currently in three asylum centers: Jelling, Sandholm and Avnstrup. They are on a mission to bring smiles and soccer into the lives of women staying at danish asylum centers.

We believe that through soccer and play we can bring a space into women’s everyday life, where they dont think of problems and traumas, but can enjoy the game and the social life soccer can provide.
