I try to be a role model for other children and young people
23-year-old Batoul has been with GAME Lebanon, an international NGO working for social change through youth-led street sports and culture, since 2016. Their activities aim to increase access to free sports facilities for Lebanese and refugee children and youth from disadvantaged families.
Batoul started as a Player, then became a volunteering sports instructor (Playmaker) herself, part of a diverse and inclusive community of volunteers who train children in life skills and physical activity to encourage a healthy living.
Today, Batoul is a Zone Manager and trainer at a GAME sports facility in Beirut, Lebanon, where she mentors and trains children in sports to support a healthy lifestyle and prevent NCDs – and more positive changes in their lives.
