Sport in Society supports Kickabout

Boston, MA - Sport in Society, a recognized leader in the international sport for development community, has pledged their support for Kickabout: Africa 2010. "Kickabout is an innovative and inspiring initiative and journey to create awareness, energy, and a legacy of sport for development and peace within communities throughout Africa. Sport in Society is delighted to show our support, and to serve as a resource for the Kickabout team,” says Eli Wolff, Sport in Society Director of Strategic Partnerships.

Through innovative programming, rigorous research and extensive outreach that impacts thousands both locally and worldwide, Sport in Society uses the power and appeal of sport to foster diversity, prevent violence, and improve the health of local and global communities.
