For those in a hurry, here is the Executive Summary:

WHAT WE DID: In 2016 SportImpact focused on spreading the Sport for Life movement of empowerment through sport. We launched phase 2 in Timor-Leste and took the project to Cabo Verde.

In Timor-Leste:

  • 24 facilitators from municipalities graduated from two Sport for Life Youth Leadership Camps
  • Volunteer facilitators organized 12 Sport for Life editions at nearly $0 cost
  • Total of 294 participants in workshops (44% women) and almost 2,300 kids in events

In Cabo Verde:

  • 9 one-week Sport for Life workshops and events in all inhabited islands, with a total of 312 workshop participants, and 5,000+ kids trying an average of 18 different sports per event
  • 11 independent event replications by workshop graduates reached 6,000+ extra kids
  • 17 facilitators from all islands graduated from a Train-the-Trainers
  • Produced the ‘Cabo Verde Sport Map’, a fact-based assessment of Cabo Verde sports, identifying key data, needs, goals & recommendations, and shared it with Minister of Sport

KEY LESSONS: Sport for Life is moved by human energy and it’s possible to grow it with ~$0 through a volunteer movement of people motivated to develop themselves and others. The project is flexible and adaptable to different realities. To ensure consistent replications we need to test and codify what really matters to achieve best impact (while keeping the approach flexible).

PRIORITIES: SportImpact’s key priority is to develop and scale up Sport for Life, streamlining processes and costs towards human and financial sustainability.

THANKS! We appreciate all the collaboration and support from our partners and volunteers who make all this possible, in particular UNESCO, Cabo Verde Olympic Committee, Peace and Sport, and INOV Contacto.
