Amir, 43 years old comes from Daraa city in Syria. He was a football coach in Syria. Since his arrival in the camp, he has been involved in many sport activities and seminaries (Football, Teqball, Baseball5). He then joined the Live Together Program in 2019 as a Table Tennis Coach.

  • I have to develop the social skills of children in addition to their athletic and technical Table Tennis skills. The social development of children is summed up by developing some soft skills in the child’s personality such as respect, non-violence, and tolerance to better ‘Live Together’. The Peace and Sport Methodology is a great tool to teach those skills to foster a generation capable of facing future challenges.
