This programme consists of unilateral lessons – held twice a week, in which children from a community share their thoughts, concerns and preconceived notions with one another about meeting children from the neighbouring community – and bilateral lessons – held every 3-4 weeks, where children from neighbouring communities come together and play with each other in mixed teams. The teams learn from a curriculum, which uses football games taught by a professional coach to meet the project’s sensitisation targets. The project is structured so that the children’s friendships are nurtured over the year. In their first meeting they get to know each other and, towards their last, parents are encouraged to get involved and different customs are celebrated.
