The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation brings together voices from all over the world to advocate for the wider uses of sport.We have been supporting and building partnerships with community sport and development projects across Africa and elsewhere in the world for over ten years. Over this period, we have seen how sport can be used to address some of the greatest development challenges, and this has strengthened our long-held belief that sport is a powerful tool for tackling broader social issues.
Our experience has also strengthened our conviction that sport has the potential to play a much greater role in development in Africa than it currently does, and that sport could succeed where other initiatives may fail, reaching people who might otherwise be excluded, and strengthening many existing development policies and projects.

This booklet briefly outlines some of the outcomes from these discussions and in particular looks at the essential ingredients needed for a successful sport for development programme. In addition we seek to highlight some of the gaps and challenges faced in understanding the impact of sport on individuals and communities and ensuring quality delivery on the ground.

In the past we thought of the teacher/coach as the knowledgeable expert and the participants as empty vessels to be filled by this expert. This system has changed, especially in the transference of life skills training. We would encourage you to embrace the changes to facilitate learning in the adolescents who you will encounter during these workshops. The challenge that will face facilitators is to creatively deliver this diverse material to different target groups. Facilitators should remain committed, however, to the facilitation process as opposed to the presentation process.
