Placing mental health at the forefront of global football for development agenda
Generation Amazing continues to be part of a group of state and non-state actors who have co-designed and co-produced a package of integrated services to support the psychological, emotional and social well-being of Afghan evacuees in Doha.
Football is core to the activities aimed at providing a distraction or escape from the stressful and traumatic events they experienced.
Working collaboratively with key partners such as Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Qatar Foundation and Maktaba Children’s Library, we have endeavored to bring the best possible learning experience through more than 420 educational workshops delivered to date.
The integrated services consist of a wide variety of daily sessions including reading, arts, music, STEM, language classes, mindfulness, yoga and dance. These activities are aligned to a needs assessment as well as partner organization’s capabilities to respond to the identified requirements.
Sport and physical activity have a key role to play in mental health support services. As Generation Amazing aspires to reach 1 million youth by 2022, we aim to place mental health at the forefront of the global football for development agenda.
