Number of people taking this action: 20-50
CHAMPION AMONG US in partnership with Kuwait Sports Club is a sport and social development program that focuses on youth in Kuwait; targeting children between the ages of 5-12years. The CHAMPION AMONG US program is built on the belief that we need to contribute positively to society and encourage others to help them realise their dreams; supporting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations General Assembly. The way we achieve this is through educating our future leaders and teaching them how to be well rounded individuals with a good moral social conscience using sport an an instrument of development and peace. Our camps held throughout the year concentrate on teaching children about healthy lifestyles, active participation in sport, sport diplomacy, social conscience, community, leadership and empowerment through humanity. Each camp motivates social development on a number of levels. Promoting healthy minds and active bodies - social responsibility using sport as an educational tool is prominently featured throughout. Each camp the children participate in an activity designed to increase awareness of their place in society and their social responsibility to humanity through charitable donation.
