Funding Organization: United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
Project Period: March 2016 to October 2016
Project Overall Goal:
The Project aims at providing a comprehensive set of traditional and regular sports and recreational activities for engagement in positive activities to shun conflicts at family and community levels; giving space to peace building and development in the area.
Specific Project Objectives:
- Curtail the menace of terrorism and violent extremism by promoting soft tools of conflict resolution to achieve durable piece
- Produce healthy brains through promoting healthy sports competitions and deny space for negative thinking
- Engage local community in traditional sports competitions to counter mental stress and frustration and bring social cohesion and harmony and mutual understanding to society
- Promote harmony and mutual understanding among various citizen groups
The project is evolving and establishes 03 sports leagues i.e. a) Cricket, b) Volleyball and c) Football. These leagues are permanently sustained and the sports committees at Community Center level organize and work with the sports leagues. At the time of start of the project activities, Zcomms mobilized youth for participation in sports leagues, conduct trials and form teams of each league. We understand that these leagues are able to produce four to five teams in each league and they could play jointly in case of participation in sports outside their UC.
Zcomms assists these teams for the first few months, build their capacity, and equip them with all required tools like uniform kits, sports gadgets, preparation of grounds, organizing teams, trials and other necessary steps. These steps are to lift the leagues to organized bodies and allow the local sports committees to collaborate and perform in the sports in organized manner.
