Palestine Association for Children’s Encouragement of Sports (PACES), is a UK based charity established in 2006, with the aim of providing healthy, structured after-school sports programs for Palestinian girls and boys ages 7-16 years. From March - November every year, children are granted an escape from being idle on the streets, or in their homes; an escape that is fun, healthy, and one that encourages participation and inclusion. Since its establishment, PACES has reached out and served over 30,000 children, 2,000 young female and male coaches and assistant coaches, and over 100 local sports clubs and other community-based organizations situated in refugee camps and most marginalized and vulnerable areas in Palestine and Jordan, and in the refugee camps of Lebanon. All programs promote gender equality and have successfully reached and maintained a 50% female participation rate.
