Sport for Development (S4D): Plan, Act, Grow

About the Courses

The idea of using sports as a tool for development is relatively new but time-tested. It is currently playing a significant role in numerous humanitarian and development projects across the globe. The Sports for Development (S4D) sector has been an extremely positive and exciting addition to the field of development as well as the sports industry.

In collaboration with UNESCO New Delhi and PRIA International Academy, PSD has developed online courses on S4D. The courses are geared towards practitioners, government officials, policymakers, social workers, sports trainers and researchers who have limited insight into S4D but are interested in building their knowledge and capacity to integrate sport-based approaches within their overall development frameworks.
