Sports for Peace Gala 2010





The historic venue – Constitution Hill

The gala took place on the historic premises of Constitution Hill, the site of the Johannesburg’s Old Fort Prison complex, where thousands of ordinary people were brutally punished before the dawn of democracy in 1994. Political leaders, such as Nelson Mandela but also Mahatma Ghandi were detained at this place. Constitution Hill is also new home of the Constitutional Court, the protector of basic right and freedom. We could not think of a place more appropriate to take the message of education as a means to build peace out into the world.
