Why use sport for development? #IDSDP

Did you know that April 6 is the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace?

ConnectSport has been working with sportanddev.org, the International Platform on Sport and Development, and the Bond SDP group in London to provide a series of articles aimed at celebrating the day.

In the articles, a variety of international NGOs explain why they use sport in their development work, and how it adds value to what they do.

Here are some of the articles:

‘Why we do Sport for Development and Peace’United Purpose
