Live a Dream, Make a Change
"Using the power of sport as a tool for social change"
Laureus Sport for Good’s goal is to help young people overcome the limitations imposed by challenging social issues including poverty, homelessness, war, violence, drug abuse, discrimination and AIDS. Laureus Sport for Good has supported a worldwide program of over 150 sports-related community projects that have been working to educate children, protect the vulnerable from illness and even bring people from divided communities together in friendship for over sixteen years.
This mission was inspired by the words of the first patron of Laureus, Nelson Mandela. At the very first Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco 2000, he said: "Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”
Supporting the Foundation is the Laureus World Sports Academy, a dedicated team of 61 legendary sportsmen and sportswomen, who have all volunteered their services to this cause, acting as global ambassadors and visiting projects to encourage young people to participate in sports and to draw public attention to these problems. Academy Members include Michael Johnson, Sachin Tendulkar, Martina Navratilova, Boris Becker, Carles Puyol, Nadia Comaneci and Tony Hawk.
