Silas Nduwayezu is 34 years old. He is a teacher at Giheta high school, Gitega province, Burundi. Trained to the Peace and Sport Methodology in the framework of the African Great Lakes program, he leads weekly activities for children after school.

  • During the training, I discovered a new dimension of sport. Not only is it a tool to catch the attention of the children, but it also teaches them the importance of values such as respect, team spirit and discipline. Week after week, we see a real evolution of each one of them. The behavior of the children participating in the program has visibly improved during the activities, at school and in the community.

After several experiences in development and human rights NGOs in France, Lebanon, Palestine and Morocco as projects, research, communication and advocacy officer, I work now on the topic of sport as a tool to promote peace at Peace and Sport.
