With the brand new short film Watch Where We Are Going, Nike showcases its commitment to athletes forced to leave their home countries. Additionally, the company announces that it will provide uniforms for the IOC Refugee Olympic Team, while also supporting the scholarship program for refugee athletes managed by the ORF. The goal is to help refugees find a community where they feel welcomed, rediscovering a fundamental sense of belonging, especially in the world of sports. The refugees who will wear Nike uniforms number 63, representing as many as 13 sports.

Through the ORF’s Terrains d’Avenir program in Paris, Nike will provide access to more inclusive play and sports environments with the aim of promoting themes such as mental health, particularly for women. The first athlete of the Refugee Olympic Team is Cindy Ngamba, who joined the roster of athletes in March and stars in Watch Where We Are Going. Ngamba left Cameroon at just 11 years old and now lives and trains in the United Kingdom, where she has been a three-time national boxing champion. In the short film, her character and strength are palpable, once again demonstrating Nike’s communicative abilities.
