Laureus Foundation Sport for Good's vision is: 'Using the power of sport to end violence, discrimination and disadvantage. Proving that sport has the power to change the world.' From basketball programs to help kids achieve academically in New Orleans, to soccer programs to teach youth in Nairobi about HIV, to boxing programs to get kids out of gangs in Rio de Janeiro, we use sports-based programming as an intervention to support youth and strengthen communities, in line with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
