IDF is happy to announce that is joining the Pledge on Sport for Inclusion and Protection for the Global Refugee Forum.
On 21 November, TAFISA actively embraced and adopted the "Joint Pledge on Sport for Inclusion and Protection" as part of its commitment to the Global Refugee Forum in December 2023. This commitment underscores TAFISA's dedication to enhancing the lives of displaced individuals and contributing to global efforts for positive change.
Facilitated by the Sport for Refugees Coalition (SfRC), the Joint Pledge on Sport for Inclusion and Protection presents a renewed perspective on the pivotal role sports can play in refugee responses. TAFISA firmly believes in the transformative power of Sport for All, recognising its potential to unite people, dismantle barriers, and foster a sense of community.
As part of our Mission 2030: For a Better World Through Sport for All, we recognise the scale of the global displacement crisis. We are committed to actively supporting, communicating, and advocating within its vast network to ensure that the 114 million displaced individuals worldwide are recognised and embraced as integral members of the Sport for All movement.
The TAFISA Joint Pledge on Sport for Inclusion and Protection for the Global Refugee Forum articulates a shared belief that sport can and does make a meaningful contribution in displacement contexts. This pledge represents a resounding call to action, reflecting TAFISA's unwavering commitment to making a positive impact on a global scale.
For more details on the TAFISA Joint Pledge and its significance, read the full statement below. Together, let us champion sport for inclusion and protection, shaping a better world through the universal language of Sport for All.
