Africa is a continent of opportunities, dynamic development and youth.
Half of the 1.2 billion residents of Africa is under the age of 25. Soon, the continent will be home to more than two billion people; one quarter of the global population.
For this young generation to be a driver of sustainable development it needs peace, access to education and prospects. The young generation often only has limited access to qualitative, participative formal and non-formal education offers and development opportunities.
Sport is an effective means to promote education, peace, violence prevention, gender equality, and health.
Young people engaging in sports acquire important life skills such as communication, collaboration and leadership skills that increase their confidence and better qualify them for the labour market.
