Challenge

In hostile environments, and especially war zones, safety, food, water and shelter are essential. However so too is play and education, having a great effect on both the physical and psychological impact for a child. The spirit of team can become a great healer.

Solution

HERA is striving to create sustainable change through workshops across Libya. The 'Sports for All' program focuses on using sports and games to develop a set of life skills that prepare adolescents for active participation in society. These are self-awareness and assertiveness; communication and negotiation skills; confidence; appreciation of difference and respect; commitment to balancing personal liberties with social responsibility to others; and a sense of belonging to a group or polity.

Long-Term Impact

A more inclusive healthier society, both physically and mentally, on and off the pitch.
