SPORT FOR DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE THE UN SYSTEM IN ACTION

© Right to Play

Getting involved in the field of development in general, and sport for development in particular, requires more than equipment and a football pitch. Building extensive networks in the private, governmental and non-governmental sectors in addition to composing a solid organisational framework and acquiring the appropriate resources is the recipe to success. 

Accordingly, this list should be considered only a foundation for funding and support enquiries. While this resource lists many potential opportunities for partnership, in-kind support and funding, it is in no way exhaustive. 

Consult this list strategically depending on your thematic goal (such as gender equality, fighting HIV/AIDs, promoting peace, reducing drugs, crime and juvenile delinquency), or your region of interest, as the links do not all apply to organisations in the field of sport and development.
