2016 In Review: Nepal

There are just a couple of days left in the #Raise1ToPlayAs1 campaign and we want to use today's blog to reflect on the accomplishments of the clubs in Nepal.

A country plagued by a decade-long civil war, Nepal still faces lingering political instability and cross-cultural tension with neighboring countries. The need for our clubs is dire and we couldn't be prouder of the work they've done and the relationships they've formed to truly bring a peaceful atmosphere to children there. Perhaps one of the most exciting events of 2016 was when the Nepal National Women's Football team joined Play for Peace's partner, the Children's Art Museum, for a day of cooperative games and fun with some of the area's youth.  The GPYC Peace Club hosted Compassion Games in the Streets to celebrate September's Compassion Games, bringing nearly 60 children into the streets for a day of fun and games. The groups also kept close ties with Play for Peace mentors and trainers in India to continue cultural learning experiences with both groups. To see more of what our Nepal groups have been up to, check out their blog page. You can designate your #Raise1ToPlayAs1 donation directly to the clubs in Nepal by donating through this link.
