For leaders using sports to change the world

This award is given to young leaders around the world who are using sports to improve the lives of disadvantaged youth in their community, bringing together groups that otherwise would not meet, and inspiring other youth to get active.


Each recipient will be supported in their endeavors on the ground through opportunities to share their work to a wider audience. Recipients will be connected to diaspora who are eager to use sports as a peace-building tool in the areas they are from. ​  


This award is in partnership with The Pro Power Foundation, a non-profit 501(C)3 organization based in the Washington D.C. USA. Pro Power is dedicated to giving the opportunity for a successful start in education and sports to all children regardless of age, race, gender, family composition, income or community.
