read more about the impact of our work
Laureus Sport for Good currently supports more than 275 programmes in over 50 countries that use the power of sport to transform lives.
Founded in response to Nelson Mandela’s challenge, issued at the first Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco in 2000, that “sport has the power to change the world”, our vision is to use sport as a powerful and cost-effective tool to help children and young people overcome violence, discrimination and disadvantage in their lives.
Over the last 20 years Laureus Sport for Good has raised more than €150m for the Sport for Development sector and, together with our partners, reached and helped change the lives of almost 6m children and young people.

How to show your support to Ukraine 

The Laureus Sport for Peace Fund will help to alleviate the humanitarian disaster unfolding in and around Ukraine following the Russian invasion. We are working to help a growingly desperate and vulnerable population.
The fund will support agencies on the ground in Ukraine providing food, emergency water, medicine, hygiene kits to prevent disease, shelter and safe spaces for mothers and children on the move.
Further support will be provided to those who have fled the fighting and have made their way to neighbouring countries.
Your donations, along with contributions from corporate partners, athletes and sports bodies, will be channelled to Laureus’ partner humanitarian organisations working on the front line, such as UNICEF, Save the Children and Red Cross / Red Crescent.

Gender equality beyond the binary

Trans youth are at greater risk of stigma, social isolation, homelessness, poor mental health, and discrimination. In many places around the world, this is compounded by a lack of legal protections. Studies have shown that trans youth face additional barriers to participation in sport and physical activity, often due to negative experiences surrounding their gender identity. Sport for Development initiatives have the opportunity to be inclusive and welcoming to trans youth and give them positive experiences in sport. In this material, developed in partnership with 9 Sport for Development programmes from across the world, we hope to inspire you to become more inclusive towards the trans youth in your community.
