Summary

We dream of playing soccer at night! Here along Gaza’s border with Egypt, we cleared the rubble, made a soccer field, and organized a soccer tournament to run through Ramadan. Now we need lights!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

We dream of playing soccer at night! Here along Gaza’s border with Egypt, we cleared the rubble, made a soccer field, and organized a soccer tournament that starts on Sept. 1st and runs through Ramadan. With lights, we could play after the fast is broken. Light will benefit the entire Ybnah refugee camp by creating a safe area where children can play, groups can interact, and families can come out to enjoy the cool night air.

How will this project solve this problem?

Cleared 12 acres of land on the border with Egypt, removed the rubble adjacent to a refugee camp with 500 households, created a soccer program for 48 youth, and scheduled tournament for Ramadan.

Potential Long Term Impact

When communities organize good things for the benefit of their children, families begin to recover from trauma, and values of good citizenship, democracy, participation and community action take hold.
