“Children who play together can learn to live together”

Our mission is to unite, educate and inspire young people in divided communities through basketball.

1 in 10 of the world’s children currently live in countries affected by armed conflicts.

Through year-round sports activities, we are bringing together children from opposite sides
of religious, ethnic and cultural divides to develop friendship and mutual respect.

Our Story

Today, we have a year-round presence on four continents, but at our beginning, we were little more than two brothers and an idea.

Our Financials

We’ve consistently received the highest grades available for accountability and transparency.

Awards and Recognition

We have been recognized as a worldwide leader in the use of sport to build a more peaceful world.

How it Works

We use basketball as a tool to bridge divides, develop leaders, and change perceptions
