Event hosted by Green Kordofan: Engaging Youth Refugees in South Sudan
About Green Kordofan
Since June 2011 renewed violence in Sudan has created hundreds of thousands displaced people and refugees from the Nuba Mountains. Over 70,000 of them took refuge in Yida, South Sudan. The vast majority of people now living in refugee camps in Yida are children.
Green Kordofan work to: “empower children who have been displaced from their homes by conflict by using sports clubs to build their confidence and self-esteem.”
Green Kordofan was set up by Raga Gibreel to bring sport to the young people in refugee camps in Yida. Sport can bring a culture of peace and teamwork and well as boosting self-esteem in young people.
