Sport for All Grants

During the 14th World Conference on Sport for All three winners were awarded each a grant for the practical implementation of Sport for All programmes — the IOC’s Sport for All Commission created a grant to support the outstanding work of entities actively engaged in promoting sport for all, particularly in the developing world, and disseminating the health and social benefits of sport in general.

The three winners of the grant correspond to the three main themes of the Conference:

• Health and social benefits of physical activity
            Eco Sports Group - Bosnia and Herzegovina
            PDF – Rehabilitation and Social Integration of Mine Victims and Families of Mine Victims

• Programmes and policies
            Sport the Bridge – Ethiopia
            PDF – Sports Builds Bridges

• Development and promotion of Sport for All
            Health Qigong Administrative Centre of the General Administration of Sport of China and the Chinese Health Qigong Association – China
            PDF – National Hundreds-City and Thousand-Village Health Qigong Demonstration and Exchange Series

 “The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practising sport. This is one of the fundamental principles of Olympism,” said President Rogge. “This is why I am very pleased about the Sport for All Commission’s project to reward three of the many outstanding Sport for All initiatives around the world ... we thank them all for their valued contributions and wish them continued success in the future.”
