Porto , Ace Africa, Laureus have a unique place in our hearts

APPACDM do Porto has been helping children and adults with mental disabilities for more than 50 years. It dedicates itself to provide support and value to the lives of mentally impaired through sustained actions that focus on individual empowerment, social integration,
Social dignity and job opportunities.

Ace Africa is an award-winning NGO working in Kenya and Tanzania helping people to take control of their future. It works with vulnerable children and families to reduce poverty, food insecurity, sexual violence and a lack of access to education. Ace Africa is a small NGO making a big difference – it has changed the lives of 1.8 people since 2003. André has been supporting the organisation since 2013.

Laureus Sport for Good currently supports more than 200 programmes in over 40 countries that use the power of sport to transform lives. Every programme which Laureus supports addresses at least one of six social issues, which are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Founded in response to Nelson Mandela’s challenge, issued at the first Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco in 2000, that “sport has the power to change the world”, Laureus Sport for Good’s vision is to use sport as a powerful and cost-effective tool to help children and young people overcome violence, discrimination and disadvantage in their lives.

Over the last 21 years, Laureus Sport for Good has raised more than €150m for the Sport for Development sector and, together with our partners, reached and helped change the lives of more than six million children and young people.
