n 11 April 2021, the Martisans Sports and Cultural Foundation (MSCF) in Ghana organized a mini soccer tournament to mark the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) at the Osu Salem Park, for youth within the community.
The tournament aimed to educate the children and youth about the importance of IDSDP, the need for peace in our world, and how to maintain a peaceful community. The tournament included a workshop on peacebuilding, delivered by women from the Nurture Nature Foundation. The workshop aimed to deepen the children’s understandings of peace and the various ways in which they can maintain peace in their communities.
The celebration provided the children and youth with the opportunity to showcase their talents while learning about peace and its benefits to our society. The platform also created an opportunity for the children and youth to enhance their physical and mental wellbeing. MSCF is most grateful to the Nurture Nature Foundation for its support towards the execution of the activity.
MSCF is proud to support the UN agenda in promoting sport for development and peace. In line with our commitment to support the realization of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, MSCF will continue to initiate projects aimed at developing the youth and community.
