THE FIRST PEACE FIELDS PROJECT PLAQUES UNVEILED
THE FIRST SCHOOL PEACE FIELD PLAQUE. This week has seen the official handing over of Chailey School’s ‘Peace Field’ plaque by Ernie Brennan, Managing Director of the National Children’s Football Alliance. Two years ago, the school took an enthusiastic lead in the national and international ‘Peace Field Project’ which called upon schools to dedicate playing fields to peace in commemoration of the Christmas Truces on the Western Front in 1914. This moment of history that inspired humanitarianism, rather than bloodshed and conflict, is the historical focal point of the project. CLICK HERE
INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S FOOTBALL ALLIANCE.
The Christmas Truces of 1914 are acts of human kindness and the stories lend themselves to everyday people from all cultures and backgrounds. We are looking forward to launching a Children’s Football Alliance (CFA) in India. Slum Soccer invites child focused agencies across India and the world to support the formation of an Indian CFA which through sharing best practice we will be in a stronger position to deliver funded projects to communities in need.
