Reconciliation through Sport
This film tells the story of reconciliation through sport.
Youth were deeply affected by the decades-long conflict in Sri Lanka, which ended in 2009. To assist in restoring stability to the communities affected, IOM organized a series of sporting events in the worst-affected areas in the North. The winning teams had the opportunity to travel to the southern cities of Colombo and Galle. There, they met peers from the South and played in friendly tournaments fostering long-term reconciliation.
