Onduparaka FC signs football for peace partnership with AVSI

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Arua based Onduparaka football club has signed a three-year partnership deal with Association of Volunteers in International Service – AVSI to nurture and promote talent among refugees and host communities.

The partnership will target young refugees and communities leaving in Omugo and Palabek Ogili refugee camps in Arua and Lamwo districts respectively.

Maria Guandezi from AVIS says, while the refugees don’t get adequate time to access quality education, this partnership will give them another opportunity to engage in other meaningful activities like sports.

Guandezi says, as a result, they have constructed a multi functional youth centre in Omugo refugee camp where three different sporting pitches have been established.
