|FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT BANGUI 2015-2016|
“SCHOOL YEAR WITHOUT EXPLOSIVE REMNANTS OF WAR”
As part of the explosive remnants of war (ERW) Education project, FSD, in partnership with the national NGOs IRAD and supported by UNMAS, organized a football tournament in the occasion of the new school year 2015-2016, addressed to 16 secondary schools in Bangui – Central Africa Republic.
The aim of the initiative is to reduce the risks of incidents/accidents among the youth as well as to contribute to the reconciliation and to the social cohesion among the population. The Tournament runs during a very delicate and difficult moment for the CAR, when political turmoil and violence are storming the capital Bangui, and the matches represent a moment of serenity.
The initiative involved the Central Africa Ministry of the Youth and Ministry of Education.
The initiative started on 7th November with an “open” ceremony and will end on 19th December 2015 with the final match fixed at the Municipal Stadium of Bangui.
During the matches, messages on risk educational are provided while school kits are distributed to the participants.
As a prize for the 1st and 2nd r teams, it will be given a substantial contribution to cover the school’s fees to all the teams’ members.
