On November 8th, IPI MENA Director Nejib Friji was hosted by Fédération de Football de la Mauritanie (Football Federation of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania – FFRIM), in Nouakchott, Mauritania, where they pledged to join the mission of sport for development.

During their meeting, Mr. Ahmed Yahya, President of FFRIM, and Mr. Friji discussed the connection between sport and development, as part of IPI’s initiative on the Culture of Peace. Acknowledging the organization’s extensive membership in all parts of Mauritania, many of whom are youth, IPI and FFRIM agreed to promote the message of sport as a tool for peace and development across all provinces, as the governing body of football in Mauritania.
