Pakistan Peace league 2016
In this idea we engaged youth to the plate form of Pakistan Peace League (A Cricket Festival) on the International Peace Day as the waywardness is one of the major reasons of illiteracy, unemployment and less participation of youth in country’s affair and for the development.
As we believe that sports is an essential tool in bringing people together on a single platform aiming a single goal by working together. We conducted Pakistan Peace League (PPL) among 6 teams from different areas of Lahore. Six teams played on knockout bases with each other keeping in mind the sportsmanship, team spirit, Co-existence, Interfaith harmony and Unity. Behind all this our aims was to make them realize the importance of youth in bringing positive change in the society that’s why we conducted this tournament on the International peace day.
We conducted the interfaith and peace matches between the mixed religions teams to promote the culture of interfaith harmony, citizenship education and peace among youth in communities. The opening ceremony of the event conducted on the same day, religious leaders, interfaith harmony activist, media, political and CSO’s representatives also joined the opening ceremony of the event and the guest spoke with youth on the importance of peace, citizenship and interfaith harmony. Each match started with peace and interfaith harmony. Teams brought their citizenship, peace, interfaith harmony massages on charts, flexes etc. the peace and interfaith harmony massages were also handed over to the crowd to support their teams. Through this we motivated youth to participate in social activities and to promote the culture of peace, interfaith harmony and tolerance.
