This year, we are partnering with PACES to raise awareness on the role of sports in the well-being, mental health and growth of children in Gaza. Our 51 cyclists will travel 240km from Gaustablikk to Oslo to raise £250,000, which will be used to develop vital sports programs for Palestinian boys and girls.


2016 Project Snapshot:

  • Support 28 female and male coaches
  • Support field staff members and programs communication
  • Provide development sessions through sportive activities to 700 children in Gaza
  • Provide uniforms and equipment for 700 children and their coaches; which are bought locally to support the local economy
  • Civic and social activities that includes health, hygiene, environmental and educational awareness sessions and fun activities for the children
  • Coaches capacity building workshops, parents public meetings and other activities with the sports centers and clubs
  • Support one team of boys/girls from PACES children in Gaza to participate in the 2016 Norway Cup



PACES is a non-profit UK based organization that aims to provide healthy, structured after-school programs for Palestinian children by offering them opportunities to play sports, flourish and grow in nurturing sanctuaries away from the war environment. Through sports, PACES hopes to empower boys and girls to become good and active citizens.

14 year old Hanan is a #PACES veteran football player - she's been part of the program since she was 8 years old. Hanan is on the PACES football girls team competing in Norway this summer!

13 year old Mahmoud Al Chami from Jenin is another PACES players headed to Norway next month. In his words, Mahmoud is "honored to be on a team carrying the name of Palestine".

This years project with PACES aims to provide opportunities to marginalized Palestinian girls and boys to play sports, flourish and grow in nurturing sanctuaries in order to empower them to become good and active citizens.

Thanks to all your efforts we have now raised more than 50% of our 1/4 million pound target!
