Sports is fun and people learns many soft and technical skills. It also unite people of all strata in the community and beyond to work and live together for any cause. To utilize sports in peacebuilding, BBC Media Action, during this FIFA World Cup 2022, produced a new series of communication materials inspiring people in the spirit of sports to reduce gender-based violence and promote peaceful coexistence.
These 3 to 5 minute-long videos are for use in community centres, information hubs, and other spaces where the community people meet. These materials can be downloaded free for use by all humanitarian agencies working in Cox's Bazar. The visual outputs are produced in the Rohingya language and can be played in any order.
