JYIF implementing a youth development program through sports in collaboration with a Danish INGO

Nov, 2017

JYIF is happy to announce its new project ‘Youth-led Street Sports for All’ in collaboration with GAME. GAME is an international non-governmental organization (INGO) based in Denmark working towards social change. This is accomplished by organizing street sports particularly in the more marginalized neighborhoods of, Denmark, Lebanon, Somaliland, and now Jordan. The partnership will be for four years and is funded by the Danish-Arab Partnership Programme.

By the end of March, the project will be kicked off with a Playmaker Camp. Young volunteers (so-called Playmakers) will be receiving proper training, enabling them to lead sport’s practices. The practices will be held in different governance across Jordan, namely: Amman, Al-Mafraq, and Ramtha. JYIF is glad to share that (88) motivated young Jordanians have already signed up to start making a difference in their communities.

JYIF is looking forward to the coming four years with great enthusiasm. Our team feels confident that joining forces with GAME, will support reaching children who would otherwise have less access to free sports.
