Project description

This IPP will explore how sports can be used as a tool for both individual and group development.

In India, sport is not valued as much as many other countries. However, it has huge potential to improve health, well-being and both personal and community development.

Participants will help build or renovate a sport infrastructure for the use of an underprivileged community, whilst learning about the challenges faced in accessing sports facilities and quality educational programs. The participants will also lead activities, games and sports sessions with children from the partner school. They will share practices and educational materials with local teachers, as well as discover Indian sports among the children. 

The IPP will work with Nehru Education Society (NES). It is an educational institution teaching 300 children from Grades 7-12th. Do not have any sports development due to lack of equipment and teaching skills.

CISV's approach to building global friendship and living together will be used to highlight the opportunity for sports and games to contribute to social inclusion.

Hosted by CISV India and CISV France
