Sport gives disadvantaged people hope where there was previously only despair. It helps us to keep moving, break down barriers and rise above ourselves. With this in mind, the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation supports numerous sporting programmes around the world, thereby boosting the self-confidence of children and young people. Children across the world are given the prospect of mental and physical health, educational attainment and equality of opportunity. A key pillar in this is the Laureus World Sports Academy, which includes over 60 of the greatest sports personalities of all time. They work in an honorary capacity for Laureus Sport for Good and motivate the children and young people by visiting the projects.
