About NIFT

BACKGROUND:

The conflict and social upheavals that have engulfed the country, Uganda, since it gained independence in 1962 has negatively impacted Ugandan society. Poverty in Northern Uganda has been aggravated by the war in the region which lasted from around 1986 up to 2004. During this time, children, women and men were abducted, tortured and orphaned by their abductors, while children were being forced to work as child soldiers and young girls being used as sex slaves. Those who managed to escape the rebel soldiers were forced to flee their homes, neglecting their livelihoods and being forced to sleep on streets or IPDs Camps where there was social disorder and disease was rife. While the war has generally ceased and people returned to their homes, the other psychosocial consequences and increased vulnerability to HIV/AIDS still remains a big problem.

Upon this background,

Nebu Independence Football Tournament is built on community platform directly aimed at achieving all the common development goals for the communities, by bringing and galvanizing the involvement of all members of the communities without the exception of sex, age, religion, political inclination and social status.In looking at the different spheres of community development elements, NIFT recognises the 3 development fronts that football can hold a major impact;

1. Education and Community Sensitisation: social development Initiative and support development through educational and awareness raising programmes. Whilst giving the young people an opportunity to nurture their talents and have a sense of belonging.

2. Conflict Resolution and inter racial friendship: Foot ball brings people together, Uganda has been through a period of wars and social upheavals, sport will present a common ground for reconciliation, preventing Violence, regional conflicts and bringing long lasting friendship.

3. Establishing a platform for equal opportunities without discrimination and inequality. NIFT aims to strike balance and offer a chance to every member of communities to participate or be part.

NIFT will establish partnerships with organizations committed to use football as a means of fostering development, eradicating poverty and raising awareness on the environment and global inequity and encourage communal cooperation with other neighbouring communities for development.
