What we achieve.

This film, featuring children from programmes sponsored by Laureus Sport for Good in South Africa, tells a powerful story of what the sport can achieve – from a young person’s point of view. It shows how sport can be a tool for social change and teach young people lessons for life.

Laureus Sport for Good Movement.

Nothing is as powerful as an idea to change things for the better. With the Laureus movement, Mercedes-Benz launched an initiative that aims to change the game for kids.
