Dear Readers,

Welcome to Issue 186 of the newsletter. This week we feature a diverse group of articles from the community. The Swiss Academy for Development shares their Move & Improve project that supports at-risk children in Uttar Pradesh, India. Our French section has an interesting interview with the author of a study on Arab football players in Israel.

In honour of International Women's Day, we have included two articles about women in sport. Reta Ivziku, a 20-year-old Albanian student, talks about the barriers to participating in sports and discusses her dream of creating Albania's first women's football club. GHD shares a photo essay on how the Pacific Sports Partnership is helping to improve gender equity across the Pacific.

Our Sport and CSR series wraps up this week with an article on lessons learnt. is also excited to announce that we now have an ambassador programme. Visit our new section to learn more about the sport professionals who are supporting our community. Finally, the Operating Team is busy preparing for IDSDP, and we imagine you are too. Please send us your updates.

Enjoy your reading,
