That sport plays a critical role in peace building and stimulating the development process cannot be gainsaid. It's with this in mind that HIRDA brings Somali youth together in order to stimulate coherence between them. Young Somalis can use sport as a means to channel their energy into something positive and worthwhile. HIRDA enjoys the confidence of communities in its poject areas to implement sustainable peace initiatives within the said communities.
The sport projects are carried out in Somalia as well as in the Netherlands. The sport activities in the latter are aimed at the Somali diaspora youth in Europe and conisits of bi-annual football and basketball tournaments. With the help of several partners, HIRDA has been able to successfully implement numerous sport projects during the years.
