This description of Allaoui Guenni's work was prepared when Allaoui Guenni was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
Introduction
Marginalization is one of the main factors contributing to the cycles of unemployment, violence, and social unrest in impoverished urban and suburban areas. Allaoui Guenni is using sports as a catalyst to bring down the walls surrounding local populations, build bridges to employment and social integration, facilitate conflict resolution, and ultimately pacify relationships within society.
