PEACE CLUB works with the coaches to prepare all young soccer players to be “champions in life”
The Peres Center for Peace works to promote peacebuilding between Israel and its Arab neighbors, particularly between Israelis and Palestinians, as well as between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel.
Spirit of Soccer works in Iraq, Cambodia, Laos and Moldova, using soccer to educate children about the dangers of landmines.
Balls Without Borders (BWB) is an international humanitarian organization which delivers soccer balls to children affected by armed conflict and natural or man-made disasters, and in doing so bears witness publicly to the plight of the people they serve.
In what was originally conceived as a one-time event in 2005, Soccer for Peace has grown into an ongoing peace-building effort using the sport of soccer to serve as both a metaphor and vehicle for world peace.
