Volleyball and scholarships - a story about Aura

Today we would like to introduce you ONE TEAM. ONE TEAM is a non-profit sports NGO, consisting of young, very different people from Frankfurt. The organization supports social sports projects worldwide. In their work, they especially focus on the empowerment of girls and young women.

One of numerous projects of ONE TEAM is BIBVA. It is a beach volleyball project in Honduras, which we already support with our awareness collection together with @lauralamode.
Today we want to tell you the story of Aura Alejandra Cruz Espinal. She is 15 years old and one of the BIBVA athletes in Honduras. Currently, she is in 9th grade at the Roatan Bilingual School on the island of Roatan. Aura plays both indoor and beach volleyball and has represented Honduras in several international tournaments in Guatemala and Mexico. How she got into volleyball? At the age of 11 years, she got in touch with the sport via BIBVA for the first time. Her talent and a partnership with another foundation on the island even brought her a scholarship for a private school, to be able to lay the foundation for a better future.

"Due to the project, we learned quickly that our island kids have the ability to become great athletes, but this is not enough without access to proper education. We think that the combination of education and sports can be a door opener, that provides opportunities for kids, who would otherwise have been denied these opportunities due to their living conditions"

These sports projects provide children with equal opportunities to pursue their passion and education at the same time. This is why we think that it is incredibly important to support organizations like ONE TEAM.

They recently launched their #BEATEAMPLAYER campaign, in which they try to win permanent donors for their to make their work as sustainable as possible. You like their work as much as we do and you want to play in their team? This Link leads you to their website, where you have the opportunity to support ONE TEAM on a permanent basis. Thank you so much for your support!
