COUNTRY OVERVIEW



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 skills 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 skills 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.

We invite you to have a look at the following teaching and learning materials, which were created by S4DA on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and our partner organizations in Kenya. You will find a more detailed description about the materials in our collection: S4D Tools for your Practice .
