The Laureus Foundation Switzerland uses the power of sport to bring about positive change. The foundation does this by concentrating on helping children and young people develop their personalities, and promoting the integration of young people who are socially, economically or otherwise disadvantaged.
Sport is not just the ideal instrument for instilling more self-confidence, self-awareness and social competence - it also helps young people to keep healthy. In this way, the Laureus Foundation Switzerland helps the coming generations to sustain a positive way of life.
The foundation supports four social sports projects in Switzerland. Globally, the Laureus Foundation helps over 1.5 million children and young people in 34 countries with over 150 projects to face life challenges.
The foundation gets the support of prominent active and former sports men and women plus personalities from the worlds of business and politics in making the most of sport’s positive social impact.
