Resume:

In a citizen participation intervention, GAME and the local partner SCORE Initiative will use inclusive street sports activities and the empowerment of youth as a vehicle for promoting social cohesion, gender equality and child protection in Somaliland. Using GAME’s train-the-trainer concept, 50 youth (25 female and 25 male) will be trained on an on-going basis as volunteer street sports instructors and youth leaders. The Playmakers will lead weekly street sports activities for local kids and youth in 5 GAME Zones: 3 in Hargeisa and 2 in Berbera. When activating the GAME Zones, there will be a specific focus on promoting gender equity by championing female street sports coaches and role models and by establishing safe spaces for girls to participate in sport. Also, Playmakers will promote Gender Equality and Child Protection by engaging the broader community (parents, clan leaders, community elders) in community dialogue workshops across the GAME Zones.
