Sport, Development and Peace for a better World
To use sport as a catalyst to design and implement programs for at‐risk youth and to facilitate the achievements of the SDGs through an integrated approach. So the citizens of our member-states can live better lives.
Sports is a proven platform for positive social impact in civil society and the Alliance works to maximize that impact through an integrated economic and human development approach.
By focusing on health, education, nutrition and overall wellness, the Alliance promotes the values of Sport, Development and Peace for a better world.
Education and Sport influence health and well being
They constitute economic assets, through the creation of jobs and contribute to local and global development for the benefit of global society, yet States and Governments struggle to finance the education and sport public policies that benefit their populations.

Education and Sports Programs (ESP)
We collaborate with psychologists, educators and trainers from around the world to design extracurricular curriculums that stimulate both body and mind with aim to foster the development of self-motivation, discipline, confidence, perseverance and self-control.
Education and Sports Labs (ESL)

National Centers of Excellence (NCE)
Delivery of Education and Sports Programs
We assure the coordination, evaluations, quality assurance and delivery of curriculum documentations and training materials in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish, and then organize, coordinate and oversee the work of national experts to deliver our Education and Sports Programs (ESP's) through National Centers of Excellence (NCE's) built in the territory of our member-states.
We identify with our member-states productive private enterprises (SDG Ventures), establish with them partnerships in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), secure financing through the Agency when necessary and use a portion of the revenues generated by SDG Ventures to finance our Initiatives at the national and international level.
