In Kano, Nigeria, we support Peace Initiative Network (PIN), a local organisation that aims to prevent and manage violent conflict through advocacy and awareness-raising. Since its inception in 2004, PIN has been committed to conflict prevention, conflict management and youth development in Nigeria.
PIN uses sports to develop friendships among young people across diverse ethnicities, cultures and religions and improve young people’s leadership, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. PIN’s activities are anchored on five thematic areas: advocacy, peace education, sports, governance and research.
Peace Direct has partnered with PIN since 2016.
