We are happy to announce the launch of our third Hiking for PACES campaign; a hiking fundraiser bringing together PACES' friends and supporters from around the world with a mission to raise awareness about the organization and funds to support its core program.

The trip is scheduled between 29 July - 4 August 2023 in Norway, which coincides with our presence in Oslo for the Norway Cup 2023, in which 2 PACES teams will participate in the largest international youth football tournament for boys and girls.

In our last campaign, the hiking team raised over $350,000 in funds to support PACES's program, and got the chance to watch the children play football and engage with them; and through that, live the spirit of PACES. You can also take a look at the video from our last hike in 2018 to learn more about the initiative.


Palestine Association for Childrens Encouragement of Sports (PACES), is a UK based charity established in 2006, with the aim of providing healthy, structured after-school sports programs for Palestinian girls and boys ages 6-16 years living in refugee camps and most marginalized and vulnerable areas in Palestine and Jordan, and in the refugee camps of Lebanon. Through its core sports program, PACES provides children with multiple educational benefits to help them thrive in their own communities. From March to November every year, children are granted an escape from being idle on the streets; an escape that is fun, healthy, and encourages participation and inclusion.

To attain a wider impact, PACES builds local capacity by training and hiring leaders in the local communities as coaches to deliver the sports programs. Coaches receive training in multiple areas, and acquire a set of skills necessary to enhance their employability in the job market. PACES also partners with local clubs and sports centres situated in marginalized areas, which facilitate outreach and delivery of the program. Since establishment, PACES has served over 30,000 children, 2,000 young female and male coaches, and over 100 local sports clubs.

PACES programs promote gender equality, and have successfully reached and maintained a 50% female participation rate.
