Integration through Sport

Dynamics of Society as Trigger for more Dynamics in Sport

Quite diverse-this is our society of today: There is a girl from Afghanistan. A young man from Albania. An elderly woman from Syria. A man from Germany. Or a boy from Eritrea..

They all have in common that:  They want to shape their life in a positive way and experience their (new) place of residence as home.

Where is this more possible than in organised sport? The place where the same language is rather low in the order of priority and the common athletic aim is paramount. People originating from other countries as well as people from Germany can meet each other here in a new way and experience that diversity is simply more.

KSB Herford sees dynamics of society as trigger for more dynamics in sport: For this reason, KSB Herford, in close collaboration with the communal integration centre of the District of Herford has already been dealing with the issue of integration and inclusion for a long time. Strong networks with the most diverse partners assist with this important work.

  • KSB Herford assists, advises and individually coordinates development processes of the club
  • KSB Herford initiates and manages forward-looking projects
  • KSB Herford assists with the qualification of voluntary personnel
  • KSB Herford creates and uses networks and contacts
  • KSB Herford provides support with effective public relations work
