If society has only one wing …

GAM3 Lebanon is currently educating a group of young people to become street level social entrepreneurs. United around the passion for basketball the so called PlayMakers bring sports and socializing to street corners, where the segregated society would otherwise keep them from meeting.

In the video the tension and need for integrating is clearly expressed in the quote “If we want to live in our society we have to integrate. If society has only one wing it is not going to make it”.

The PlayMakers are being educated as part of the KVINFO supported program “Gender Equality Makers”. On this program GAM3 Denmark, GAM3 Lebanon, and the women’s rights organization KAFA has teamed up, to get more girls into sports through the use of street sports activities, seminars, and advocacy.
