Likevel er det mange barn og unge som ikke finner sin plass i det ordinære idrettslaget. Årsakene til fravær i idretten varierer, dette fordi alle de ulike faktorene som spiller inn i barn og unges liv. Mange av de som ikke deltar i idrett har faktisk et ønske om å være med.
Tilbudene vi har er åpne for barn og ungdom, uforpliktende og gratis for deltakerne. Gjennom våre aktiviter inkluderer vi barn og ungdom i idrett, og vi synliggjør hvilke muligheter som finnes. Les mer på vår hjemmeside.
For andre gang var vi i Furuset så heldige å få være vertskap for 2 fredskorpsdeltakere fra Zambia. De er i Norge gjennom et fredskorpsutvekslingsprogram med Norges Idrettsforbund, og skal få en forståelse for og bidra til idrettsmiljøet på Furuset. James Chomba og Limpo Siloiso bidro på alle våre aktiviteter, og var hos oss fram til vinterferien 2019.
Kent, Henrik og Rune med utvekslingsstudentene, Limpo og James, var sentrale under kom deg ut-dagen (vinteren 2019).
Limpo: I have developed so much as an individual, I have learnt how to be more open minded, tolerant, friendly and to be more confident in myself. In addition to this have I have learnt how to work with people who are both mentally and physically disabled, which I have never done in Zambia. Through the time at Furuset have I gotten a lot of experience of working with different age groups and backgrounds which is so much impressive.
Through my time at Furuset, I have I improved my personal skills and learnt more about myself. In addition to this, have I have learnt some new sports and games that I will use back home as I work with different groups of children and youths.
There are many new and interesting people I have met through my time at Furuset, who have made my days here great. People like Kent-Rune, Kainat and Rune have put a smile on my face. My colleagues are so great to work with and are unique in they own way, this has helped me learn how to work with different types of people.
James: My experience during the working period at Furuset has been good and so effective for my knowledge during the exchange. working at Furuset has been productive and helped me alot, so far I have learnt something which can be helpful and take it back to my home country.
Working at Furuset has helped me to learn how to be social and friendly to different kinds of people i’m working with and also the participants of the activities.
Working at Furuset has helped me on how to get in touch and have good conversations with people who is mentally and physically challenged through having activities and fun with them, not only that but also that but also treat them as equals.
Working at Furuset has helped me to develop my capacity of thinking beyond sports. Also on how to deliver the sessions to the children and people with different disabilities with all about having good and effective communication.
Working at Furuset has been helpful and effective in terms of differences we had, it have helped to involve everyone in my activity and session planning through social and be open minded.
