We have received wonderful news from our regional coordinator in Pakistan, Nadeem Ghazi, about the success of the “Sports for Peace” project by the name of DOSTI(Friendship) with the partnership of British Council Pakistan.
Some of the highlights of the program has been their work in various conflict areas with 1000 students from the ages 12- 18 years old.
This involved 8 schools in sports for peace activities, especially soccer! Their target is to involve 2000 youth in conflict communities and areas of city in the two year project. They have developed a board of advisory members from the local leadership and community members, for which they will be arranging thematic sessions to teach them about conflict and resolution skills.
