The Barcelona Olympic Foundation would like to thank the Joia Foundation and the Sants Entities Secretariat for allowing us to contribute to projects such as ‘We are girls, we play sports’ and ‘We learn by sharing’.
We would also like to thank the generosity and commitment of the collaborating entities —Royal Polo Club, Royal Tennis Club Barcelona 1899, Yellow Panthers, FC Barcelona and the Catalan basketball, handball and paddle tennis federations. This project would not have been possible without their help.
During the event, which was hosted by TV3 journalist Mireia Vicente, the sponsors had the opportunity to find out more about the projects in which they participate.
Núria Esterri, service director of the Secretariat entities, and Lluís Gràcia, director of the Sports Board of the Secretariat, presented the project ‘We are girls, we play sports‘ to their sponsors Mª Victoria de Arcilla, manager of the Royal Polo Club, and Jon Domínguez, manager of the Yellow Panthers.
Susana Silvestre, technical assistant director of the Joia Foundation, explained the work carried out by the sponsors Enric Prats, first vice-president of the Catalan Basketball Federation, and Ramon Massons, member of the FC Barcelona Sports Committee.
Last but not least, Adriana Cabeceran, coordinator, and Hichan Chichati, instructor of the project ‘We learn by sharing‘, described their experience to Genaro Millet, social vice-president of the Royal Tennis Club Barcelona 1899, and David Escudé, president of the Barcelona Olympic Foundation, who expressed his gratitude to all the participants for their support.
