We are a thriving global learning community working to create peace in communities in conflict by training and supporting generations of peace builders. Together we can make a difference. Why is peace important?
Youth-led cooperative play has the power to bring together people from different nationalities, religions, and backgrounds to find common ground, build friendships, and create a more peaceful world.
Since laughter and having fun is, in a way, the core business of Play for Peace, we formed a very natural partnership with the first-ever global collaborative fundraising challenge in the world—the ROFL (Rolling On the Floor Laughing) challenge.
While Costa Rica is famous for its beautiful beaches and nature, it is not without conflict. With the largest migrant population in Central America, many flee Nicaragua only to face racism, exploitation, and more. One of these areas is La Carpio, where Play for Peace recently opened a club and is working hard to unite the community.
In part three of this three-part series, Play for Peace regional coordinator Katrin Hünemörder visits our club at a refugee camp in Musselkanaal, Netherlands. Although recently closed, the camp was an integration success story. Meet some of the refugees who've been impacted by Play for Peace and learn how they are now impacting others.
