Our Response to COVID-19  


Our young leaders are using the values and skills learned at Play for Peace to take important action for their communities. For example, access to food has been a major issue for vulnerable communities staying at home.


  • Arzoo, in India, has delivered meals for five days to 125 families (about 700 to 800 people!).
  • Innocent of Kenya is feeding 50 students from his school.
  • Anser of Pakistan has delivered dry foods to 600 families. Access to accurate, helpful information is another conflict we’ve seen.
  • Garima, in Nepal, created a COVID-19 awareness video for her community. 
  • Roel and his refugee youth leaders in the Netherlands volunteer at local grocery stores disinfecting shopping carts to keep the community safe.
  • More stories coming every day!

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Play for Peace global office is here to calm the emotional storm, sooth community fears, provide connection, and fuel compassion. We have begun delivering virtual content to uplift spirits and encourage people to join our movement of spreading compassion, connection, and community.

Examples include:

  • A "Friendship Fridays" series focusing on positive stories of compassion, connection, and community happenings in the world

  • Sharing experiential activities for all ages in a PFP + Kikori blog

  • And now including, live webinars with tips for navigating the pandemic featuring our Play for Peace community! Every Wednesday starting April 22.

Webinars!

Find out how you can support them (and get a little something back too!).

    For the past seven years, Play for Peace has hosted a live 5K race to celebrate World Peace Day and support our efforts to create compassion, connection, and community around the world. However, like many things in 2020, this year our celebration will look a little different. This year, our race is going virtual!
