Video review of FIVB's participation in Doha development program

 
The FIVB has considerable experience helping organise sports-centred camps and festivals, making it an excellent partner for the UNOSDP

Doha, Qatar, June 10, 2013 – The Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) is pleased to present a video of its recent participation in a United Nations (UN) Youth Leadership Camp, adding to its highly respected track record in development and extensive development programme.

The governing body for volleyball was a key partner in the Camp, which was run by the United Nations Organisation on Sport for Development and Peace and was hosted by Right to Play and the Aspire Dome in February, and which provided an opportunity to bring together 35 youth aged 18-25 from Africa and the Middle East who are actively involved in sport. 

The video - by England's Sky Sports - highlights the key role the FIVB played in the camp, where the organisers praised volleyball for its benefits as a non-contact sport.

“They have limited access to sports and different games, so they need to get empowered to get chances to explore sports more,” says Eithar Ahmad Lutfi Ghouli, with Right to Play – Jordan.

The FIVB has a strong history of development having close relationships with various humanitarian agencies in the past - the UNHCR, refugee camps etc - but since 2011 has been working closely with the United Nations in an effort to support the attainment and awareness of the UN Millennium Development Goals, as well as to further harness the power of volleyball to bring about positive social change worldwide.

The camp aimed to continue integration and development of volleyball in countries to provide youth with positive outlets. Volleyball is especially popular among girls in the camp, because it is a non-contact sport.
