The residents of IDPs Camp Uhogua joined other Nigerians and people all over the world to celebrate events marking 6 April as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace. The event which was held at the various playgrounds at the Camp was facilitated by CSED (Community Sport and Educational Development) Initiative.
Three major sporting events (Netball training/matches, Badminton training/matches and 5-A-side football training and penalty kicks competition) was held. Taking part in these games elicited a lot of excitement from the residents. The winners and runners-up of the three sports categories received cash prizes from CSED National Coordinator, Edema Fuludu.
However, it was not all training and playing, the camp residents also had food donated to them by CSED Initiative. These items include: ten 50kg bags of rice, cartons of packed fish, basket of tomatoes, groundnut oil and other cooking condiments that was meant for the dinner of the about 5000 (five thousand) residents of the Camp.
Given the success of the IDSDP event, CSED Trustees are currently liaising with the NYSC Zonal office in Edo State in order for them to post four Corpers (Doctor, Social worker, Psychologist and Physical Education graduate) to IDPs Uhogua. CSED Initiative would be willing to pay the one-year stipend of the four Youth Corpers who will be posted to the IDPs Camp in future. As part of their PSHE drive in schools, CSED hope to work closely with their supporters and partners to hold an inter-house sport event for the residents of the IDPs Camp Uhogua before the end of the year.
We decided to take sports to the hard to reach citizens of our country, in order to inspire and tell them that they are not forgotten.
I have just completed my bachelor’s in sport sciences so my aim is to establish a sports academy in my region.
I wanna break the stereotypes in my society regarding gender discrimination in sports.
I was very good in academics in my school so my teachers used to say I have to get admission in any engineering college. But I was interested in sports from the day first so now I have done my graduation in sport sciences and physical education from the University of Punjab Lahore.

Trampoline Gymnastics coach Offering Tlaka (RSA): “As much as it’s such a competitive environment at the end, the friendships that are built, it’s more than just the sport. It’s just about development, growth, and love. We’re all in it because we have this passion to strive for greatness.” bit.ly/SportAndPeace
“Gymnastics gave me so many opportunities that I wouldn’t have thought existed. It opened my horizon to a totally different world, giving me opportunity to study through my sport and giving me an opportunity to travel and meet people outside my culture and my religion.”
Coach Innocent Yaka (BEN) was in his sixth year of school at the College of Avrankou in the department of Ouémé, Benin, when he discovered Gymnastics and embarked on a lifelong love affair with the sport. “Gymnastics allowed me to learn and be a recognised trainer nationally, in Africa, and in the world,” bit.ly/SportAndPeace
“I have got to know a lot of people around the world. It also allowed me to be much more tolerant of others.”
Coach Darius Fields (BAR) shares his dream:“People would say they want the World Championships and Olympics. My ambition is less that and more to see more engagement in the sport in the country,” he said. “I love to see kids learn new skills. Every time they get a new skill, you get a moment of excitement and joy, and it’s the best thing.” bit.ly/SportAndPeace
