As the world is celebrating the power of football in contributing to peace through the Global Peace Games under Fifa, PlaySoccer Malawi conducted its version of the games on Sunday.
At least 400 girls and boys aged between six and 15 years took part in the event at Makata Primary School ground in Ndirande, Blantyre. They were divided into five-player teams for 10-minute rotational football matches.
According to PlaySoccer country director Sullivan Kandulu, the annual games aim at promoting interaction and unity among children from different family backgrounds.
“We want to encourage peace among families by letting children play the beautiful game together,” he said.
American Judy McPherson founded both PlaySoccer and the Global Peace Games in 2001.
