Parkour Sport

Parkour is a movement sport that aims to improve physical and mental health and increases muscle strength and overall fitness. It contributes to enhancing self-confidence for the children and young people who participate and develops their self-reliance by encouraging them to overcome physical and psychological obstacles. This helps promote horizons free from violence and helps children face their fears. Ghirass started this sport in 2017 in cooperation with the German Foundation for International Development (GIZ). GIZ provides Ghirass with a professional Parkour trainer who is an expert in dealing with children. The children receive training on weekly basis. Ghirass renews the course every two months so new children can participate and the list of participants can be modified.
