On 25-26 June the 3 X 3 BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT “BLOCK VIOLENCE AND RACISM” was held in Galatsi, Athens.

AITIMA participated for third time aiming at promoting the participation of children belonging to vulnerable groups as well as at combating racism.

This year we contributed to the participation of unaccompanied minors who stay in Athens as well as of a team from the Center for the Support of Children and Families.
