Highlights of the Month

Annual Report 2021-22

As the pandemic continued to rage through the world, 2021-22 was another unpredictable year for us at PSD. Yet, with support from our team members, partners and community stakeholders, we were able to continue to deliver our programs, remain engaged with the sport for development community and get #BackToThePitch. 

Partnership with Laureus Sport for Good

PSD has been commissioned by Laureus Sport for Good to conduct a scoping study on organizations across the world that are using skateboarding, dance or other innovative sports for development, as Laureus looks to invest in new, non-traditional sports for social impact. 

Peer leaders attend UNIFY2022

Our peer leaders, who are supported through a scholarship in partnership with KickOff Solutions, attended a 3-day workshop, UNIFY2022, in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. UNIFY2022 was organized by KickOff Solutions to bring together the 50 young women across India from different organizations being supported by KickOff, to come together to meet, interact and learn from each other, while exchanging stories and sharing goals.
