Learning through volunteering: Our project in Colombia
As we completed 15 years working in sports, Alexandra and I decided to embark on a volunteer consultancy with Grupo Internacional de Paz (GIP), a local NGO in Medellin, Colombia, specialised in building peace through sports. This article series will share our learnings as a result of this experience with those interested in further examining issues related to the business model of social programmes in sports, and how to define and measure their impact in local communities.
The A-B-C-D qualities of a sport and development leader
Throughout her career, sportanddev.org ambassador Dr. Elizabeth Odera has led a number of sport and development programmes, many of which incorporate leadership skills training. In this four-part series, she draws on her experience to highlight the most important leadership qualities.
Sport and corporate social responsibility
Written by Neil Rankin and Paul Hunt, this series looks at the deepening relationship between corporations and sport-based NGOs. The series begins with an insight into the occurrence of CSR and some of the key themes. This is followed by articles that look at more specific examples of how CSR is being used to support sport for development.
Sport and development in India
This series was written by Jaidip Patel in 2016. The first articles set the scene of sport for development in India before highlighting some of the issues and opportunities surrounding fundraising. The final two articles ask why cricket is not more commonly used and how India can build on the rise of female sports stars to inspire the next generation.
Monitoring and evaluation
M&E is becoming more and more important in the sport for development sector. Project funders required detailed analysis of exactly how their money is being spent and the social return on investment. This series provides greater insight into what we mean by 'monitoring and evaluation', some of the biggest challenges and why quality M&E is so crucial.
Article series: Sport and the sustainable development goals
This series was written in 2015 in the wake of the agreement by the United Nations to adopt the '2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development'. Key to the resolution are the sustainable development goal's (SDG's) and this series investigates how the sport for development sector will change as the SDG's are adopted.
