GGWCUP COPENHAGEN QUALIFIER
Introducing, Katerina Salta and team Hestia!
Hestia is an ancient greek goddess of the hearth, architecture, and the right ordering of domesticity, the family, the home, and the state. “My motivation is to fight against any kind of discrimination, as well as to promote the social inclusion and integration of refugee women, and equal access to sport for women,” says Katerina.
See you on the pitch in Copenhagen May 14!
Team Hestia will be playing for Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
“I consider the GGWCup unique because it combines four important issues: sport, women, vulnerable populations and the SDGs. My vision is that the women of my team will become inspiring role models, not only for other refugee women but for women with less opportunities in general.”
In Ancient Greek religion, Hestia is a virgin goddess of the hearth, architecture, and the right ordering of domesticity, the family, the home, and the state.
Katerina will implement the project in collaboration with the International Olympic Truce Centre.
