Update on sports in promotion of peace

While promoting peace and solidarity at the border of Mali and Burkina Faso, HOPE’87, as part of the United Teams- the strategic alliance of the YOU Foundation (Germany) and HOPE’87 (Austria), has been working on numerous educational and income-generating projects since 2008.

One of them being the “Sports knows no boundaries” project, which aims at peaceful and cheerful competition between the youth of the rural communities of Finkolo (Mali) and Koloko (Burkina Faso). The project positively impacts the physical, mental and social development of children and adolescents and contributes at the same time to the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.

For more information have a short read (in German) about the project on “Weltnachrichten”, the online journal of the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).

HOPE’87 would like to express its outmost gratitude to the Austrian Federal Ministry of Public Services and Sports for having made this project possible!
