In the conflicts in East-Congo, more then 5.000.000 people are believed to have died as a result of the war. Sports4HOPE is trying to bring endurable peace by means of sports and peace education. This film is meant to show their supporters in the United States the work that they are doing. The film was shot in February 2012 in some small villages near Bunia (DR Congo). We did two days of shooting and three days of editing.

If you like a film like this for your NGO or charity project, please let me know at I am planning new visits to the region of DR Congo, Cameroon, Uganda and Tanzania.

The Sports4HOPE method includes four steps: community needs assessment, project development with local partner, engaging youth in sports and peace education, and promoting long-term local ownership of the project. We also firmly believe that achieving positive outcomes largely depends on the values and principles informing decision-making throughout this process.

Produced and directed by Maarten Kal. For more info please have a look at
