Processes of Evolving 

The idea is to work with youth from the communities to develop them as facilitative leaders in the community. 

Youth ideally from different communities worked together as mix teams in a safer space to be trainers of Play for peace

while developing trust and friendship with youth from other communities. 

 Youth trainers brought teenagers and children together in their locality at the regular frequency in playing sessions. 

Teenagers and children together forming “Play for Peace clubs” in their locality as well as in regions.  

 

In the evolving process, we experienced.

Our common humanity

It transcends the artificial distinctions that divide us.

When we are playing with someone,

We don’t play with their skin, color or cultural identity;

We play with them as a person.

We have a universal, non-threatening platform

We can come together 

Play and learn

Play and unlearn 

Play and Grow 

 

‘Play creates a gateway to moments when differences dissolve, fear melts away and

we see what connects us rather than what divides us.’

In play, we become our true selves. 

         In play, we open up to learning. 

In play, people discover, and indeed experience, a universal and purposeful connection.


Play becomes the catalyst, which inspires people from different cultures to reach across barriers and boundaries. 

Therein lies the potential for entire community to begins to unlearn previously held biases
