Say NO to violence, say YES to sport in Lezha

This sport-focused project brought together MWL, the local Education Office of Lezha, the Directory of Education and Youth at the Municipality of Lezha, 10 local high schools and 1,800 students to address the issue of violence in schools and classrooms. The goals of the project included assisting schools in obtaining sports equipment and promoting physical safety in schools through sports. Utilizing sporting events as a positive form of engagement at their schools, students were sensitized to the fact that they themselves play a key role in creating and maintaining a school environment free from violence. A total of 10 volleyball teams from 10 high schools competed in a tournament, which culminated in an awards ceremony attended by students and local authorities to distribute certificates and trophies.
