Sport for Peace
Project background. CECORE through the “Sport for Peace” project sought to strengthen social cohesion among and between refugee and host community youth in Adjumani district. The innovation had a human-centered design, as the perspectives of youth, communities, district and community leaders, and the Office of the Prime Minister were involved at all times, from needs analysis to project design, implementation and evaluation. Youth were at the forefront of the innovation, with special attention to out-of-school youth, former child soldiers and extremist youth. Through established community clubs, the project strengthened their capacity in non-violent approaches to conflict resolution through a 30-week Sport for Peace curriculum. Furthermore, the project trained 60 Peace Champions in peacebuilding and conflict transformation skills who were graduated into change agents to initiate youth-led

CECORE was contracted by Act Church of Sweden, hosted by ICCO, to conduct a Peace and Conflict Impact Assessment (PCIA) of its MIRP programme in Kyangwali Refugee Settlement and the refugee hosting communities; as part of support to inform ongoing and future programming focused on building the resilience of vulnerable communities. The PCIA focused on community and household level conflict within the settlement and host communities.
The PCIA seeks to understand the impact of conflict on MIRP ongoing and future programmes; and to identify potential opportunities for peace building initiatives within the programmes. It conducted an organizational capacity needs assessment for MIRP partners with the aim of developing a capacity development plan for its staff, core programme beneficiaries, as well as a training needs analysis for design and delivery of conflict sensitive programming.
The assessment was conducted using qualitative methodologies in which data collection tools were developed and applied to achieve in-depth examination of the causes of tensions and conflict; its characteristics and dynamics. The tools included: Secondary Literature Review, Key Informant Interviews and Focus Group Discussions. Case Studies, Consensus Panel and observation methods were also applied across the study.
