Become inspired and involved. Preview a snippet that showcases an incredible educational program that currently affects and empowers tens of thousands of children in Mexico. Realize the potential of children in your own country - bring them the opportunities Sports to Share has to offer.

Deportes para compartir (Sports to Share) is an educational and civic program for all children in Mexico. The program develops awareness about the UN 8 Millennium Development Goals (MDG) through the novel use of games and sporting activities.

The activities are geared towards promoting and establishing:
1. Civic participation in achieving the UN MDGs;
2. Healthy lifestyle; and
3. An appreciation for culture.

To date, 32,000 children have benefited from this program. Teachers and parents collaborate to mobilize the program and we call the children the Sports to Share Ambassadors.
