Assignment 1 International Interest
Nowadays everything seemed relate to international aspects because the world is becoming as a global village. A lot of organization is also containing international components in order to have a higher quality organization. For example, one of my interests is basketball association. I like to play basketball and enjoy watching the players competed for their honor of the teams. An international organization called Peace Players International, which is helping to develop sports skills from different area`s children from age 10 to 14 is organized by South Africa, Northern Ireland, and Middle East. Peace Players International has four main objectives, bridge social divides, develop future leaders, educate children to lead healthy, constructive lives and build community involvement to ensure long-term sustainability.
Peace Players International was founded in 2001 on the premise that “children who play together can learn to live together.” Peace Players International effectively blends together proven theories of social modeling, conflict resolution and public diplomacy to operate basketball and life-skills programs in historically divided regions that bring together thousands of children from different religious, racial, and cultural backgrounds.

Working with the UNDP and other local partners, Peace Players International-Cyprus has the following objectives: Peace Players International is bring hundreds of Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot children together to play basketball in a fun, inclusive environment and also train and employ local young audits from both communities to work together as coaches, leaders and role models In addition, Peace Players International develop links between Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot sports clubs and other community organizations and build community involvement and investment.
