About the program:
Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul is delivering its One Team program with the club’s partner Beko, for students from the public TEB Atasehir Anatolian High School, who come from low-income families. The program focuses on helping the kids stay interested in sport by experiencing the different values of basketball in a fun and engaging way. The program also will include sessions on health and well-being, along with several actions related to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 13. Fenerbahce is working with a group of 15 mixed gender participants, aged 14-16, on a weekly basis to give them the best opportunity to develop over time. The program is supported by experienced Fenerbahce youth team coaches and experts from Beko.
