The Nanhi Kali Sports Project nominated for prestigious Peace and Sport award

Validation of the wonderful collaboration between a development NGO, The Naandi Foundation and a sport specialist, Global Nomad’s World (GNW), have been nominated for an award at the Peace and Sport International Forum.

The Naandi Foundation and GNW are thrilled to announce that the Nanhi Kali Sports Project has been nominated for the Development-and-Peace-through-Sport Programme of the Year, awarded by the Peace and Sport Organisation.   Specifically, this award rewards a development programme that has a positive impact for communities, teaching values through sport exercises adapted to the local environment.  

The Nanhi Kali Sport Project is a wonderful collaboration between specialists in development (the Naandi Foundation) specialists in sports (GNW). This kind of collaboration in the world of sport and development (SFD) is a key in helping to develop sustainable programmes in various parts of the world. Often these SFD projects are taking place in areas of the world where cultural, political, social and/or economic sensitivities are heightened. There are so many obstacles and challenges involved in these projects that require non-sport related resources and knowledge. Likewise, this non-sport sector is in need of sport specialists to help explain and promote the benefits of SFD programmes and to afford the technical expertise to organise the sport specific events.   

The final award will be presented in Monaco on 12 December 2019 at the occasion of the Peace and Sport International Forum.
