Sport for Peace and Trauma Healing
PLAY4PEACE AND MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
P4PM is a new approach set up by Community Support Center / CSC-Asbl; with the aim of giving joy and hope to the most vulnerable with the intention that after having regained joy they will become productive members of society. P4PM helps to empower the most vulnerable and build bridges between those most discriminated against and those living a normal life. CSC-Asbl plans to create P4PM clubs wherever it operates in order to facilitate meeting up with survivors and victims. A P4PM club welcomes all children and girls without distinction of sexual orientation, origin or ethnicity, to play different games such as: Football, Yoga, Skipping rope, zango, word games, basketball, volleyball and many others.
Why are we playing?
The purpose of our activities is to give joy and hope for a better future to survivors and victims, this joy and hope is aimed at helping make them productive members of society. We also play for:
- Trauma healing
- Social reintegration
- Social cohesion and inclusion
- Rights of the child
- Conflict resolution and well-being
P4PM uses sport as a tool for peacebuilding, promoting children's rights and improving the mental health of child survivors and victims of war, ethnic conflict and violence in the eastern DRC.
