This program is ideal for

Enthusiastic individuals passionate about fostering unity and understanding among diverse communities. Volunteers should possess empathy, cultural sensitivity, and a love for sports, particularly football. They should be committed to promoting peace and harmony, while enjoying the energy and camaraderie of youth engagement.

Sporting activities are designed as effective tools for uniting young people of different ethnic, religious and socio-cultural backgrounds.

The goal of the Football for Peace Tournaments for Youth is to use football's ability to bring people together and heal divisions amongst young people from different socioeconomic, religious, and ethnic backgrounds. The program builds empathy, respect for one another, and understanding via fun sports, promoting harmony and unity. It encourages male and female kids to unite, compete, and work together in a spirit of camaraderie, which not only encourages physical activity but also instils important life skills and supports community peace-building initiatives. This program is a perfect example of how athletics may promote social solidarity and positive development.   

[The best time to come would be between February - November. Yes, some activities are project specific such as the Youth Peace Camp and the Skill Acquisition and Economic Empowerment programme. However, with skill acquisition programmes volunteers can work with people who we have already trained who have established their businesses and are training others.]

While volunteering, the volunteers have a variety of options to enjoy their free time, ensuring a balanced mix of relaxation, exploration, and cultural immersion:

  • Hiking, Yoga
  • Visit the Zoo and Museum
  • Naraguta Leather Works (It is a little village that specialises in the production of leather products wholesale and retail).
  • Visit Peace Island Lake(for Boat and Horse Rides)
