We are who we become
The power of sports

The pitch, the track, the ball, the action. From the desolated fields of Northern Kenya to the many islands of Indonesia. From the hinterland of Surinam to the townships of South Africa, it’s a force you can’t deny.

Sport for development.nl is all about this power. It provides opportunities for disadvantaged children, youth and other vulnerable groups; to participate, to learn and to grow in society. For many young people these opportunities are scarce. Often, and already at an early age, they are faced with a lack of schooling, unemployment, drug abuse, conflict and violence.To these young people, sport is an important driver of development. Not just for them individually but also for communities and for society as a whole.
