We are a not-for-profit organisation founded in 1991. We use sport and play to promote children and young people’s development and support them in becoming active and engaged members of their communities, internationally and in Switzerland.

Our Vision

Our vision is a world where everyone can actively shape their lives and contribute to an equitable and sustainable future.

Our Mission

Our mission is to use sport and play to support disadvantaged children and young people to become healthy, educated and employed members of sustainable and inclusive communities.

Our Guiding Principles and Values


We include everyone, regardless of gender and (sexual) identity, age, religion or belief, place of residence, ethnic origin, disability, etc.


We apply protection principles aligning with our child safeguarding policy and code of conduct, as well as the International Safeguards for Children in Sport. In line with those principles, we take care to respect local norms and values. We show respect for fundamental human rights, social justice and human dignity and we encourage our partners to do the same.


Our interventions are participatory. We listen to and trust the people we work with and involve those who are most concerned in the planning, implementation and evaluation of our activities, thereby ensuring that initiatives and projects respond to the needs of those targeted. We always work in partnership and ensure that our interventions are embedded into relevant local, regional and international structures. We participate in, cooperate with and share knowledge among our different networks.


Always pursuing the organisation’s goals, we do not stand still. We are innovative and continuously seek to learn and develop. We rigorously monitor and evaluate whether we are effective at achieving anticipated outcomes and goals. Based on the results, we aim to improve ourselves, develop and adapt tools and approaches. We conduct targeted research to discern the components of effective interventions, build the evidence and promote the sharing and exchange of knowledge and reciprocal learning. We stay informed on latest trends and are open to new ideas and partnerships.
