Know Your Donors: A Guide on Donors Supporting Sports for Development (April 2019)
Sports contribute to the physical activities, mental well-being and social interaction that go beyond competitive sports. From much recent year, sports development has become a part of humanitarian and development work as well as a part of the corporate social responsibility practices.
Promotion of sports and increased participation of individuals have a wider effect of benefiting the community. Sports can be used as a tool for change to end violence, discrimination, and disadvantage for children and young people around the world.
Sport is seen to have the most benefits in Individual development, Health promotion and disease prevention, Promotion of gender equality, Social integration and the development of social capital, Peacebuilding and conflict prevention/resolution, Post-disaster/trauma relief and normalization of life, Economic development, Communication and social mobilization.
Many interested parties are anxious to explore and harness the power of sport as a unifying force in helping children and youth to reach their highest potential and creating more equal playing fields for all.
Actors in sport, academia, the private sector, non-profit and non-governmental organizations, government agencies, UN agencies and international organizations, the media, the general public as well as young people are increasingly interested in the potential of sport as a tool to reach personal, community, national and international development objectives.
