CCPA is in particular known for our programmes: Open Fun Football Schools (OFFS), and Street Sport & Community Clubs, which are to be considered unconventionel reconciliation projects focusing on dialogue and confidence-building meassures.
CCPA's projects are building on the experience of how wars and ethnic conflics affects people and their possibilities of returning to a daily life in post conflict areas.
In this post-conflict setting CCPA is specialised in using:
a) our specific pedagogical "Fun-Football-Concept" as tool to rally children and adults living in divided communities around an activty of common interest ('bridging'), and
b) our stakeholder/civil society approach as tools to build a sustainable structures in civil society, where people of different backgrounds can meet and interact ('bonding') while discussing: children - welfare - future.

To build friendships and sport co-operation among children and adults from divided communities based on equality and non-discrimination
