SportWORKS Projects

Commonwealth Games Canada has been involved in over 125 sport for development and sport development projects in over 30 countries around the world. Brief summaries of some of these projects are given below which includes: their geographic location, partners involved, and the associated CGC initiative.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development highlights sport as “an important enabler of sustainable development”. It recognizes the growing contribution of sport to the realization of development and peace in its promotion of tolerance and respect, and the contributions it makes to the empowerment of women and girls, young people, individuals, and communities, as well as to health, education, gender equality and social inclusion objectives. Thanks to the generous support of the Government and Canada and our other donors, CGC is proud to be one of the world’s pioneers of international sport for development and sport development work.

Kicking AIDS Out is an international network of organizations working together using sport and physical activity to raise HIV/AIDS awareness and motivate behavioural change. Programs implemented by member organizations integrate sport and life skills through movement games, role plays, drama, and other cultural and recreational activities which encourage peers to discuss issues that affect their lives and communities.

Kicking AIDS Out develops programs to train coaches, trainers and leaders, building capacity at the individual, organizational and community level. CGC was involved in developing and delivering Kicking AIDS Out content in Africa and the Caribbean.
