This document reports on the outcome of an assessment of the impact of Playing for Peace’s “bridging divides” programme. Four primary target groups were included in the study: children who took part in the Playing for Peace (PFP) programme, children who did not take part in the programme, parents of children who took part in the programme, and principals and school representatives of schools, which were selected to be part of the programme.

The results of the report show that the majority of PFP-children had a better multi-cultural understanding, compared with the children who had not been exposed to the PFP programme. Programme evaluation amongst parents and principals showed that both groups were very appreciative of the programme, and that they were generally convinced that the children benefited immensely from their exposure to the programme.
