FOOTBALLERS stand united against bullying as the Malta Football Association announces a brand new anti-bullying initiative.
Players will team up with anti-bullying NGO (non-governmental organisation) bBrave in a week-long awareness campaign and will wear shirts with the tag-line “United against bullying” before matches at Ta’ Qali.
Starting on Monday, November 16, the events organised by bBrave hope to raise awareness about the different forms of bullying as it seeks to facilitate support for those suffering from bullying, and also, the perpetrators.
The Malta Football Association in collaboration with the NGO will hold workshops for players, employees, nurseries and parents over the next four years.
The university’s Department of Computer Science has teamed up with bBrave to offer a mobile app that features games with empowering messages, and the NGO will also offer sufferers free counselling provided by trainee counsellors from the Department of Counselling at the Faculty for Social Wellbeing.
