announcement bases - presentation form
Nearly a decade ago, a diverse group of individuals - all with different backgrounds, social standing and appearances - gathered together to aid the economically disadvantaged, basing their collective action on the promotion of athletic activities. Today, the Sport, Culture and Development Association, thanks to the invaluable support of both public and private institutions and organisations, has been able to bring the majority of its´ projects to fruition, especially since its formal establishment in 2004. Some initiatives, better-known but not necessarily more rewarding, include the Football Solidarity Tour or the International Award for Solidarity in Sports, now in its sixth year.
Simultaneously, the association has developed various projects in Africa and South America (such as "sustainable greenhouses" to aid in the struggle against hunger),
continually rooting its efforts in such fundamental premises as the indispensable role of education as a path towards self-realization, and the necessity of developmental support to better take advantage of human potential. A rather public example can be found in the case of Ikechukwu Uche, currently playing with Real Zaragoza Living proof of the maxim "if there is a will there´s a way", he found a path out of his native Nigeria thanks in part to the initiatives of Sport & Development. .
With your help, with help from everyone, we can continue this path towards solidarity - here you can learn about our most significant achievements - promoting hope and inspiration. A dedicated effort which is, without a doubt, well worth it.
