The Sports Creative co-designs programs with communities to empower marginalized and vulnerable youth to take control of their lives!
Street & Orphaned Children
They are at extreme risk, often dehumanized by society and denied their rights. We believe that through protection, respect, rehabilitation, and opportunities, each of these young people can access their rights and leave risk behind.
Girls around the world are being left behind due to pervasive sexism. Living on the fringes of society, and abused as consequence, they are often forced into work against their wishes, human rights, and the law.
Refugees & Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)
Many refugees have witnessed or experienced violent acts and, in exile, are at risk of abuse, neglect, violence, exploitation, trafficking, or military recruitment. IDPs have fled their homes to escape armed confict, violence, persecution, or natural or man-made disasters. With high mortality rates and risk of physical attack, sexual assault, and abduction, they are often deprived of adequate shelter, food, and health services.
They are suffering poor health, increased crime, and low academic performance. Virtually invisible, isolated youth are excluded socially and economically from their communities and the resources that could help them succeed.
