Our initiative will bring together different cities around Palestine, we decided to unify them virtually, it’s not the distance that matters it’s the common goal. A group of athletes from cities around Palestine will tell us what peace means to them and how sports is connected to social inclusion, peace, and youth empowerment. Due to living conditions, children and youth are limited to what they can do after school, sports is the game changer for them, through sports they were able to bring out each other’s personality, it strengthened them individually and as a team. Sports development taught them life skills, it taught them unity, it empowered them to keep aiming for their goal and pursuing life. Our program creates activities that build the life skills of people of all ages who are trapped in conflict. We aim to help empower and initiate growth in our communities by advocating for peace, social inclusion and youth empowerment. Sport activities will be used by the project as a constructive catalyst for empowering refugee groups, fostering social cohesion, and strengthening links with communities. The promotion of peace, harmony, and respect shall be achieved through community involvement.
