Programmes: Sport and Arts For Peace for Children
Generations For Peace has been active in Lebanon since the beginning of 2013. Following the success of our first Sport For Peace Programme, which targeted Lebanese, Syrian, and Palestinian children in Sidon, GFP has expanded its work to implement the Programme in 10 regions across the country. GFP is additionally introducing Arts For Peace in Lebanon to promote a culture of social cohesion.
The rapid influx of Syrian refugees into Lebanon has increased social pressure on communities suffering from violence among young people due to vulnerability, discrimination, and economic difficulties. GFP Sport and Arts For Peace Programmes implemented in Lebanon are designed to raise awareness of the concepts of peace building, human rights, and social cohesion. Using unique activities, we engage Lebanese, Syrian, and Palestinian children and youth to help them bring these concepts into their communities and become a positive change in society.
