The Foundation celebrates the @idsdp International Day for Sport, Development and Peace 2019 in wonderful Germany, with the former UN Advisor for Sport, Development and Peace, Mr. Wilfred Lemke, and Olympic athlete, Tegla Laroupe. We celebrate the power of sport to break down walls on the occasion of the 30 year fall of the Berlin Wall.
The UN, IOC, Foundation for Sport, Development and Peace, Governmental and non-governmental partners across the globe, unite every year to celebrate the power of sport in restoring communities. We are incredibly happy to be carrying out this mandate, changing the world – one physical activity at a time.
