Humble beginnings. Big dreams. At Sport 4 Peace, we are ordinary people who believe sport can be used to change the world. We’re educators, athletes, artists, coaches, students, and parents who have experienced the power of sport and feel compelled to share it with others.
Take a journey with us and see the ways sports are being used to empower people, inspire communities, and promote healing in war-torn societies all over the world.
Some talk about the impossible. Some do the impossible. For 20 years, we’ve worked alongside men, women, and children all over the world who are doing the impossible daily. Picture the joy on a young Iraqi boy’s face after making his first basket from a wheelchair. Or the pride of an Iranian father as he watches his daughter hit her first home run.
People across cultures are finding purpose and meaning in life through sports and are uniting and inspiring others to do the same.
Changing the world is not for the faint of heart. It requires conviction, commitment, perseverance, and the willingness to sacrifice for something that matters. At Sport 4 Peace, we believe everyone has the capacity to make a difference, no matter your age, skills, education, or experiences. How will you choose to live your life?
Be a difference maker. Use your time, energy, and resources to do something that matters! Check out our Take Action page for ideas!
