“Reach Out” for the International Day of Sport for Development Peace PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 09 April 2014 05:16


As a tribute to the inaugural United Nations International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, 6th April 2014, TAFISA publicly released its Reach Out Program.

 

Reaching Out to Developing Sport for All Movements Globally

 

The TAFISA Reach Out program, developed with the support of the IOC, aims to build awareness, cooperation and strategic development of local and national Sport for All movements, particularly less developed countries. The TAFISA Reach Out Program will create synergy between governors and practitioners of Sport for All delivery, to enable communities and citizens around the world to benefit from the myriad benefits that Sport for All can bring.

 

In the words of Mr. Wilfried Lemke, Special Advisor to the UN Secretary General on Sport for Development and Peace, sport “has the capacity to empower individuals and bring one’s moral values to the forefront” and “can play a strategic role in transferring life skills and communicating useful and encouraging messages on important issues, thus driving social change.” The TAFISA Reach Out program will help bring this positive change to our member nations around the world.

 

More Information – TAFISA Reach Out Program:

The TAFISA Reach Out program is available for all TAFISA members and NOCs. Please see the attached flyer for more information regarding the program, or contact the TAFISA office at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
