Laureus Sport for Good currently supports more than 200 programmes in over 40 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.
We’re supporting the Laureus family, our programmes and wider communities during the Covid-19 pandemic. We’ve launched the Sport for Good Response Fund – uniting the global sporting community's efforts to protect vulnerable children and young people in these times of crisis – and created an online platform to share knowledge, learnings and best practice from across our network.
