Sport has been around for centuries, but the concept of using sport as a tool for development is a fairly recent phenomenon. However, it is now becoming an important part of a number of humanitarian and developmental projects worldwide. 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.
This course has been designed to make it relevant to practitioners, government officials, policy makers, social workers, sports trainers and managers as well as researchers who have limited insight into S4D, but are interested in building their knowledge and capacity to integrate S4D approaches within their overall development frameworks.
We provided scholarships to a total of 30 students in two cohorts for this course in 2021. The scholarship program covered 90% of the total fee of the course, with participants having to contribute the remaining 10%. The first scholarship cohort began in July 2021, and the second in November 2021.
