A guide for anyone supporting or governing organisations who work with children.
This guide has been developed based on the experiences of over 50 organisations who have been piloting the International Safeguards since 2012. The quotes and examples throughout this guide are based on their experiences. This project has been led by a Founders Group of leading safeguarding organisations and is based on research conducted by Brunel University led by Dr Daniel Rhind.
Peace and Sport brings together and develops partnerships between the Peace (NGOs, UN Agencies, Academics), the Sport (Olympic Family, International Federations, National Olympic Committees, Athletes) and the Political worlds with the aim of implementing and ensuring the sustainability of field programs, maximizing the use of sport for development and peace and leading social transformation in every area of the world affected by poverty or social instability. Peace and Sport is built around four key pillars: Mobilize, Connect, Demonstrate, Advocate. The organization takes concrete action to prove the federating, educational and social impact of sport through sport diplomacy initiatives and field programs with the support of our Champions for Peace club.
Racism and discrimination affect society at large, and football is no exception. Their impact on our sport is undeniable. FIFA recognises its responsibility to lead the way in abolishing all forms of discrimination in our game, but also to make the most of the influence football has beyond the pitch, thereby contributing to the fight against this scourge of society.
In April 2018, FITEQ signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Peace and Sport, an international, neutral and independent organisation based in Monaco that contributes to peace using the power of sport.
The MoU was signed in Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan, where Peace and Sport run the inspiring Live Together programme. Upon the signing of the MoU, both organisations confirmed their intention to join forces to promote teqball as a tool for social development and equality.
Two Teq tables were donated to the citizens of Zaatari Refugee Camp, which is Jordan’s fourth biggest city. Residents there had the opportunity to play on the tables and receive two days of training.
