Description: Spreading joy and peace through football. Play 31 uses the power of football to work with people and communities affected by conflict. It facilitates community tournaments and programs focusing on human rights and conflict resolution. The organization aims to create a peaceful society where children all have the right to play.

 

How it Began: Play 31 started with a simple football match in Sierra Leone. Jakob Silas Lund, the founder of Play 31, was asked every morning by the local kids to play football with them. After finally playing with them one morning and seeing the conditions of the boys’ football, Lund bought them a new one. This gesture gave birth to Play 31.
