Ambassador: Goksenin Koksal

Main Life Skills: Integration, communication

About the program: after a successful program working with the children of Bir Can Bin Umut last season, Galatasaray has decided to continue working with this amazing foundation, that focusses on helping children with Cerebral Palsy. The main objectives of the program are to help the children to socialize using the power of basketball and raising awareness of Cerebral Palsy itself. They are running One Team sessions for 20 kids aged 4-18 over 10 weeks. In particular, March will be a very important month for the program, and awareness of Cerebral Palsy in general, as the club plans to involve the whole community by having everyone wear green clothes for that month, and in this way raise awareness of the condition.
