Sport (Football, per se) is a powerful tool to promote peace, tolerance and understanding by bringing people together. Its intrinsic values such as teamwork, discipline, respect and the rules can be harnessed in the advancement of social cohesion and peaceful coexistence.
NoFYL has given birth to a novel idea of organizing a football tournament for the local youth, in our forlorn efforts to promote peace and harmony and importantly, to get the local youths engrossed in a programme that we hope can dissuade them from getting preyed on by callous radical groups. We believe, by organizing such an imperative program, we will have won the minds and hearts of the youths in the muddy road to peace and de-radicalization.
NoFYL is aiming to organize peace awareness raising events targeting both players and spectators alike. This, we believe, will bolster the peace campaigns and be a panacea to the issues facing the local youths.
