A friendship football match was organized by communities in Bubon in August 17, 2007. SUNSPIRIT, community leaders and ex-conflict parties (police, military, and ex-combatants) got involve in the game. The team of SUNSPIRIT, Keuchick and ex-GAM won the game against the Government, Military and Police Team. This dynamics before, during and after the game proved to be an effective way of building cordial relationships among the parties involved. It was also an effective witness of friendship, peace and social re-integration to more then 1000 of people who witnessed the game.

In a “coffee gathering” after the game, the head of Sub district expressed his commitment to make the same event regularly. In the future SUNSPIRIT will support similar initiatives.
