Dear Readers,

Welcome to issue 188 of the newsletter.

6 April marked the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP). In this newsletter, we have included a round-up of’s IDSDP coverage and a video showing an impressive #WhiteCard celebration involving 2,000 schoolchildren. If you are interested in learning more about what happened in the community, visit our News and Views section and our social media pages. IDSDP was followed by World Health Day on 7 April. Netball Samoa and its partners used the opportunity to provide youth with coping strategies for depression.

Football continues to be the most popular sport around the world. Referee Carmine Sangiovanni shares some of the important skills the sport has taught him while this week’s French article informs us about the challenges faced by female footballers in Palestine.

The results of our annual survey are in. Take a look and tell us what you think.

Enjoy your reading,
Kathleen Woodhouse-Ledermann
