Children are our future. The Boustany Foundation supports children around the world to enable them to live happy, healthy, productive and rewarding lives.
In 2021 we launched our first inhouse initiative relating to Children, the Sport 4 Children Award.
From inception, the Foundation has been giving grants to many organizations working with children, who strive to achieve the same objectives as us and share the same visions.
Sport 4 Children Award
After a long and difficult process of evaluation, with over 80 applications from 14 different countries, the selection committee determined that the winner of the first edition of the Sport 4 Children Award was Terres en Mêlées for their “Alafia Rugby pour la Paix” project.
The Alafia – Rugby pour la Paix project will be implemented in the African countries of Burkina Faso and Togo. The project will have as direct beneficiaries 1.500 boys and girls between 6 and 15 years old. In a region characterized by ethnic, religious, cultural and political diversity, Terres en Mêlées aims to transmit to children through sport, a foundation of common values and to spread a culture of non-violence. This will ultimately contribute to enable children to live happy, healthy, productive, meaningful, and rewarding lives.
The next edition of the Sport 4 Children Award will be in 2024.
