Playing for Peace
For 20+ years, with the support of our donors, we have created smiles for more than 1.8 million kids in 24 countries where the past has been affected by war or conflict.
The mission continues, and we need your help more than ever.
We promote peace and social improvements
Cross Cultures is an international Alliance of non-profit organisations that promotes peaceful coexistence, gender equality, and social improvements across conflicts and social divides through fun sports and dialogue based on voluntarism.
The Open Fun Football Schools programme is Cross Cultures’ core activity, from which our slogan Playing for Peace originates
All our activities are organised by voluntary leaders and coaches
We educate the youth to become volunteer coaches, association leaders and community organisers.
We bring children and youth to play together in fun across societal divides and promote peace, social inclusion and gender equality worldwide.
CROSS CULTURES CORE ACTIVITIES
Open Fun Football Schools
The Open Fun Football Schools programme is Cross Cultures’ core activity, from which our slogan bringing people together originates.
We mobilise and recruit young people aged 18-25 for the Cross Cultures Youth Leadership Education. The education is organised as an action-learning process. The students are trained as volunteer educators by attending a series of seminars on Cross Cultures Leadership Education.
The School + Sport + Police (SSP) initiative is an add-on to the Open Fun Football School programme (OFFS). It builds on the basic perception that efficient crime prevention measures are not a matter for the police alone
