Everywhere We Go! – Faroe Islands, October 2021 (Donation 87)
We are pleased to confirm that the recipient of the 87th consecutive donation, to mark the game against the Faroe Islands, will be Javni who are based in Torshavn and celebrate their 50th birthday in 2021.
The name Javni is taken from a wild plant which flourishes in the harsh Faroe Islands environment and also means equality or parity in Faroese which sums up the ethos of the charity, to provide a world where everyone has an equal chance.
The mission of Javni is to provide support for the intellectually disabled and their families throughout the Faroes. The charity does support the intellectually disabled of all ages but has a particular focus on children and young adults. Their vision is to provide a world where everyone has a chance:
- for independence
- to realise dreams and
- for a full and rewarding life regardless of additional challenges faced.
Over the coming months we’ll work with Marjun, who runs Javni, to understand which project the donation will help to fund, so we can share this with you.
We will confirm the date and time of the donation nearer to the game, as we’d like to be able to welcome as many of our supporters as possible along to the presentation and hopefully in person but with the backup of doing so online.
* We are listing this as the 85th donation but with so many unknowns, will we play any build up games for the Euros away etc, we ‘think’ this might be the number but who knows!
