Handball Project

AYPAD Organization introduced handball sport within our counties of operation in Africa as an engine to empower young people while also promoting peace and sustainable development through sport. In many countries in Africa handball has very little history and is therefore not seen very important but, it serves as an ideal setting within which dialogue and empowerment can be promoted. The sport is popular in many part of the world, spectacular, dynamic and exciting. It requires speed, strength, power, stamina, endurance, fitness and above all teamwork also requires little equipment and is low cost, allowing it to be played everywhere.

AYPAD Handball project creates opportunities for young people in deprived communities. These young people are able to play!  While Handball teaches them life skills and values like fairness, team spirit and responsibility.

Beside positive personal and social benefits, the Handball project is a great tool for the kids and youth to get active and have fun together thus reducing traumatic effort of war, unemployment and Violence in the communities.
