HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein praises ongoing sport-for-peace activities around the world
Generations For Peace (GFP) and the Jordan Olympic Committee (JOC) celebrated the second International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) by inviting 96 youths from across Jordan to participate in sport-based games at their Al Hussein Youth Sport City headquarters. The youth, including boys and girls ages 12-18, have been participating in ongoing peace-building activities at their schools this year organised by GFP with support from USAID. These programmes are dedicated to teaching young people conflict transformation skills using sport as a vehicle for behaviour change.
