Welcome to our Country Collection!

We are implementing S4D projects and programmes in countries all over the world, always in close cooperation with different local partner organisations. In every country, significant S4D knowledge and content has been developed, in different languages, with different sport ant topical foci. We are happy to share that valuable S4D knowledge with you!



More than 20 million people in Africa (excluding the Northern region) are on the move, fleeing war, violence and persecution. Kenya is hosting more than 500,000 refugees from neighbouring countries. People from diverse ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds settle in Kakuma and the Turkana West region. In order to promote peaceful encounters and inclusion in the region, the German development cooperation focuses on violence prevention through sport.

Jointly with partners, the German Development Cooperation, namely Kenyan partners and the “Sport for Development in Africa” (S4DA) Regional Project developed didactic materials on how to promote peaceful conflict resolution competences through football. The manual and drill book built the foundation for the qualification of coaches and teachers who are mainly active in Kakuma/Turkana West. Equipped with new competences and sports equipment sets, the coaches create peaceful encounters on constructed or renovated sports grounds and teach children and youth from refugee and host communities how to use non-violent strategies for conflict resolution through football – both on and off the sports grounds. To spread S4D in football clubs across Kenya, the Football Kenya Federation is integrating the approach into its nationwide coaching courses.

S4D in education and sport policies: S4DA is closely collaborating with governmental and non-governmental partners in the development of beneficial policies in the education and sport sector. In Kenya, thanks to the embedding of the S4D approach in the policy on Physical Education and Sport for Basic Education (see guideline "Physical Education and Sport Policy" below), the provision of safe, inclusive and fun sport activities in formal and informal education settings for all learners can be ensured.
