For Soren Guldberg Kjer from Bramming, handball is about smiles and happy children. Not only in Denmark, and therefore he has voluntarily and at his own expense initiated projects with street handball in handball developing countries such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iran and Indonesia. Since 2006, his help and go-ahead has set handball in motion in 15 countries worldwide.

Bramming: During the Christmas period, 41-year-old Soren received a Christmas package from Japan.

It was a handball jersey with signatures and with the names of the countries where he has started projects with street handball.

The gift was one of many grateful greetings that occasionally hit his private address in Bramming from happy handball players around the world, and since Soren Guldberg Kjaer started his own street handball project in 2006, he has made collaboration agreements with 15 countries from all corners of the world.

SINCE 2006, Soren Guldberg Kjer HAS WORKED WITH STREET HANDBALL. HERE HIS INTEREST WAS STIRRED AFTER A SEMINAR IN GERMANY, AND SINCE THEN IT HAS DEVELOPED TO COUNTRIES ALL OVER THE WORLD


Well, notice countries that you do not normally associate with handball, and it is only because of a fabulous international handball network and impressive courage that Soren Guldberg Kjaer has managed to get so many handball projects up and running.

DUE TO A LOT OF WORK BY Soren Guldberg Kjer FROM BRAMMING, STREET HANDBALL IS PLAYED TODAY IN AMONG OTHER PLACES GAMBIA AND MANY OTHER PLACES IN THE WORLD THAT ARE NOT NORMALLY CONNECTED WITH HANDBALL.


Self-financed.

– Yesterday I spoke with my contact in Iran. I sent them three balls and only heard from them two years later, where they had suddenly made a cool event, says Soren Guldberg Kjaer and explains how he has also placed an order for 200 street handballs. Bought and paid for out his own purse, ordered at a factory in Pakistan and from here distributed to the contacts worldwide who are missing handballs.

The price is thousands of kroner, but he likes to spend without getting anything in return. He is rewarded by the whole purpose of the Streethandballdotcom project.

IRAN IS NOT KNOWN AS THE GREATEST HANDBALL COUNTRY, BUT MAYBE STREETHANDBALL FROM BRAMMING COULD HELP CORRECT IT.


– I spend all my free time on it, but I am passionate about making the world a better place for those I able to help. It is my endeavour to give all children the opportunity to play, and it gives me joy that I can see happy people when they play handball, says Soren Guldberg Kjaer and explains how it always requires outreach work at home and abroad to keep the project running.

Success experience

It all began in 2006, when Soren Guldberg Kjaer signed up for a European street sport seminar in Brandenburg, Germany.

Street Handball was founded 2006 to a "Street Sport for Europe" seminar Germany - Video part 2/2

– I could see that there were no practical exercises in the program, so I asked if I could give a presentation of one hour. I was allowed to do that, and it went great, and it was probably the experience of that success that made me continue to work with it, he says and explains how street handball takes place without body contact, without dribbling, against two goals and with rules, which ensures fair play for all.

Although his project has reached far beyond Denmark’s borders, the local association in Bramming and the city’s schools have also benefited from his burning handball commitment.

World Cup

– I’m bitten by a crazy handball and always have been. My sister has played, my father, my grandfather, everyone in the family has played it, he says and explains how he also watches mostly handball on TV.

In addition, he has coached boys’ teams in Bramming IF, attended the handball line at Ribe Handelsskole and Koldingegnens Idrætsefterskole in the 1990s and today works steadily and calmly on getting out into the Danish associations and presenting street handball.

He has been responsible for training locally and at Bramming’s schools, and does a lot of outreach work in relation to associations that could be interested in receiving a visit from him and learning more about street handball.

THE LOCAL SCHOOL IN BRAMMING ALSO HAD A VISIT FROM STREETHANDBALL.COM, JUST AS MANY OTHER ASSOCIATIONS HAVE TESTED THE PROJECT.


– I hope to get out even more and use the multi-courts around the country, and my big goal is to be able to make a kind of street handball World Cup. This requires sponsors and I do not have those yet.

He also works with applying for funds in relation to developing a street handball starter kit with balls, goals and more, which he can send to associations in Denmark as well as to happy handball children all over the world.

Facts:

Do you want to help?

Street handball is played with soft balls, with fair play, without physical contact and without dribbles. Can be played on multi-pitches, streets, alleys or other places. It is fun and strengthens both fitness, provides exercise and cultivates community. And this is, among other things, what Soren Guldberg Kjaer wants with the project – to make the world a better place through sport. 

Soren Guldberg Kjaer would very much like to be contacted via his website if anyone would like to support his project, become a partner, have good ideas, or if you as a school, association or company could be interested in participating in the project. If you want to support financially, he can get even more starting kits with balls, goals and more sent to the 15 countries with cooperation agreements and possibly new countries.
