This article considers in which way trauma recovery plays a role in development aid projects that use sport and games as a means, and how sport and games in these projects can be implemented in a more evidence-based way.

The study of the practice-based evidence and evidence-based practice in projects using sports as an instrument for trauma recovery in development aid aims to increase insight into the effectivity and impact of sport development aid projects.

This insight can improve the accountability and profilation as an organisation. Questionnaires were used with open questions to provide qualitative analysis. Based on internet research and inquiry at related organisations, an overview is made of organisations that work in this field.
