Share this page

We are a global leader in the sport for development sector, strengthening it through impact measurement, research and knowledge-sharing.

We support more than 100 sports-based community programmes in 35 countries to combat social challenges facing children and young people.

Every programme which we support is addressing at least one of the following six social issues, which are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Health: Enhancing mental wellbeing and encouraging healthy behaviour change
  • Education: Increased access to and completion of education
  • Women and Girls: Promoting equality, empowerment and safety
  • Employability: Developing skills and creating pathways to employment
  • Inclusive Society: Creating communities which embrace ethnic, cultural and physical differences
  • Peaceful Society: Resolving conflict, promoting community peace-building and creating safe spaces

Laureus Sport for Good carries the unanimous endorsement of the Laureus World Sports Academy & Ambassadors, role models and icons of sport who volunteer their time in support of Laureus. Through this unique body, we are highlighting serious social issues faced by children and young people and unlocking more funding through advocacy and communications.
