F4P Training Camp in Korea
The second F4P Korea Training Camp at Seoul National University Korea, took place between 22 and 25 July in partnership with Korean Sharing Movement (KSM).
The Korean Sharing Movement is an NGO providing aid to people in North Korea and promoting reconciliation and mutual understanding between the two sides of the border and with the neighbouring countries of China and Japan. There were 28 Tier 1 and 12 Tier 2 Korean coaches trained in F4P methodology who came from across South Korea. The camp consisted of three days of training and a one day ‘Festival of Football’ with 43 children from F4P Korea programme in Seoul. The F4P Korea programme was a result of the partnership with KSM which applies the values methodology in peace education activities between local and North Korean ‘defector’ children.
The aim of the training camp is to provide trained coaches for the F4P Korea programme but also to draw in teachers, coaches, social and community workers who can adopt the methodology to their work in schools, clubs, churches and wider communities. The premise is to ‘prepare’ people for reunification by promoting peace and ways of understanding and accepting the other.
