Giving children a safe place to play sports

JCP Nordic is supporting the important work GAME is doing in Lebanon with 25.000 NOK. This contribution will help give children in Lebanon a place to play street sports in a safe environment.

GAME, who is an international Top 200 NGO, has a mission to create social change through street sports. The organization has been in Lebanon since 2007 and with their simple but effective concept, they want to educate young people from diverse religious, social, and ethnic backgrounds as role models and street sports instructors.

Over the past 10 years these young people who go by the name “Playmakers” have organized sports activities for more than 10,000 children and peers across the country.

In addition, GAME hires and operates nine GAME Zones around the country where children and young people can play sports. GAME Zones creates safe environments for the children to play by finding the right locations, equipment and coaches.

– GAME is doing such amazing work giving children and young adults a place to play sports. We are happy to be able to contribute to this important cause, says Øystein Tynning, CEO in JCP Nordic.
