Moinina, or when helping is what gives meaning to everything - One Team VI, Week VI


The sixth day of training of the sixth project of One Team with Valencia Basket served to learn the story of Moinina, a 14-year-old girl of Saharawi parents born in Spain and to whom, as a family, the presence of the Santa Marta Project and conscience own has developed a special empathy towards the rest of the people, focusing their life on the help of others.

When the vocation to help comes from the family, it is much easier, "my father fights for the rights of the Sarahui people, I like what he does because he helps the people who have less, there they live in houses now but until two or three years they lived in jaimas, and he wants these people to have a roof, light, water ... the minimum ".

That is why he is clear about what he wants to dedicate, "I am interested in helping in psychology until adolescence, I imagine in an office, people come to tell me their problems and I try to help and raise awareness".

Moinina highlights the work of the One Team coaches, "I see that they are good people and they want everyone to participate, that they are not just in a group that get along, that they know each other and that they separate us , and I like that, that you should not only be with your surroundings and not know anyone. " Something that is not strange, "in Santa Marta do the same as coaches, do not put a group alone, you have to meet people, and help you a lot, if you have a problem, Santa Marta will help you."

A project with which she feels identified, "One Team seems very good to me, you play sports and you learn to value what they give you and to value your teammates".
