What is "Refereeing for Peace"?

Based in Fiji, this is an initiative to offer both a rehabilitation programme for young prisoners, and also to offer diversionary activities for unemployed youth in urban and semi-urban Fiji, by teaching them to become referees in a variety of different sports. Our current sport is in rugby (union). We believe that this is the first initiative in the world to use this kind of programme to help develop youth who have fallen on the wrong side of the law, or who at risk of doing so.

Please explore out site to learn more about what we are doing and what we think we are achieving through this project.

We are quite shameless in the fact that we are trying to use this site to find funding to further extend and promote this exciting new venture.
