Hand in Hand

In diverse communities across the region, Israeli and Palestinian boys and girls take part in a unique, in-depth peace education through sport program. Through "twinning" Jewish and Arab as well as Israeli and Palestinian communities together, these youths play in mixed groups as one team, with their coaches undergo extensive training in the unique educational methodologies developed by the Peres Center.

At the end of each activity year, all participants meet for the Mini Mondial - a "World Cup" themed tournament - and together with ambassadors from around the world, local mayors, and Israeli Premier League players, enjoy a full day of sports, FairPlay, and peacebuilding.
