Peace Games is the Non governmental organization created by Uisp in 1990 to promote and support humanitarian aid and cooperation for development actions, that local committees and sport leagues realize in the South countries and East Europe.
Peace Games mission is to valorise sport potentiality as instrument of growth and aggregation in development society. Projects propose sport as communication vehicle and cohabitation in lands afflicted by wars or as instrument to support educational projects in developing countries. In this sense it addresses to traditionally weakest sectors of population, as children, disables or elderly, but overall to youth as receptive subjects able to multiply and transmit positive messages.
In collaboration with local partners Peace Games work on training of local operators, on animation, on restructuration and settlement of recreational and sport spaces and social aggregative centres. In emergency situations it also works on rehabilitation of structures and buildings and with distribution of relief goods.
Peace Games organizes in Italy training courses for operators, with generic skills on social discomfort and in particular on the use of sport methodologies to promote Peace. Beneficiaries are educators and sport, social and cultural operators.
