By having football matches, of course! In football camps believe it or not.
Students from Drvar, Glamoč and Livno, who underwent training on Football3 methodology in the previous year, had the opportunity to show their skills on the football field through half-day camps organized in primary schools in these three municipalities.
With lots of laughter, games and fun, girls and boys enjoyed hanging out and making new friends with Football3.
We are proud that we had the opportunity to grow and learn together through sports.
Check out what we did…
And did you know that the Genesis Project is the first organization that brought the Football3 for Peace methodology to Bosnia and Herzegovina?
“Football3” – Football as an instrument for social change and development of young people is a methodology that promotes key life skills and aims to empower young people to become young leaders in their communities.
For us, it was most important to try to give children and young people the power to create their own identity and to be a role model for their peers. Through the game of football, we contributed to creating a sense of community, unity and a common goal in Drvar, Glamoč and Livno, and we hope that many other schools will learn about this methodology from us in the future!
