Teamwork with Romaissa - One Team VIII, Week II


The second day of the eighth Euroleague CSR One Team project with Valencia Basket had the goal to learn about working as a team, with the members of the Maria Auxiliadora Foundation learning to collaborate and trust their teammates to complete different exercises in L'Alqueria del Basket .


Romaissa reflected the things they learnt. Born in Morocco, Romaissa is a girl who loves to communicate and talk, and has been attending the Laura Vicuña Center for three years. At the end of the session, she was very happy for what she had lived. “We thought we were just coming to play but we have also learned how to work as a team. I think it's a good activity, because it consists not only in competing, but also in working together, and having fun” she explained.


The protagonist knows very well the meaning of teamwork after the session: "It means helping each other, collaborating, having fun together". She also believes that what has been learned can also be applied off the court "It serves for sports, for work, to help other people, and to help us" she said.


Romaissa, after enjoying the session with her teammates, summed up the day in one sentence. "The truth is that I did not expect it, this is an amazing experience" she concluded.


Maria Auxiliadora Foundation

Promoted by the daughters of María Auxiliadora (Salesianas), its fundamental mission is to respond to the socio-educational needs of children, teenagers, youth and women at risk and/or social exclusion. The Foundation tries to respond, through all the projects and services it carries out, to the needs of the groups in a situation of exclusion and to help transform our society into a more fair and more humane world. The goal is that all the people who participate in the project feel welcomed, valued and protagonists of their own growth process. Through this, social projects for inclusion, promotion and social and labor insertion are promoted.


Ten sessions, one goal

This project "One Team VIII" has planned ten training sessions that will take place on Fridays from November 8 in the afternoon until January. With them, the participants live positive experiences and develop healthy habits of self-improvement that can be transferred to the school or work environment. All this through learning the basics of a collective sport such as basketball, which will help participants to know the values of sacrifice and responsibility that derive from organized exercise, use sport as a formula for personal development and make them take the steps towards that they can find in the practice of any sport activity a way to grow as people.
