Training Life Coaches to Encourage Sport and Combat Smoking (Palestine)

 

The Gaza Strip is smaller than Manhattan island and has suffered from blockades, wars and civil unrest which have contributed to major shortages as well as significant levels of youth mental ill-health.

We are recruiting eight graduates as life coaches who will be trained in eight sessions focused on smoking cessation, increasing physical activity and how to live together under COVID restrictions. These coaches and two expert psychologists will deliver courses to young people as well as training and motivating them to take part in swimming trips, a football competition and running in three marathons.
