Reynard ’10M, Sports4Hope Founder Makes Peaceful Progress in Congo
February 7, 2012
Stephen Reynard ’10M, founder of Sports4HOPE, an organization that seeks to prevent and reconcile conflicts through sport and peace education, recently appeared on News Channel 5 of Nashville, Tenn. Reynard moved to the Eastern region of Congo in the fall of 2011 to work with three communities involved in an inter-tribal massacre that resulted in 300 deaths. His work has been more labor intensive than they had originally imagined, having to excavate boulders to create the space to practice their sports. Despite these unforeseen challenges, he and the organization are making steady progress. Watch the News Channel 5 feature.
