Jura Sports is committed to give 1% of its turnover to youth sports projects in Africa. Our aim is to give opportunities to young athletes for a bright future.

Why ?

We believe sports is one of the best vectors of education and social cohesion for society. Not only it promotes good health, but sports create bonds and lessons for a lifetime. We are extremely lucky in Europe to have all the material we need. This is not the case in Africa. By supporting local initiatives, we aim to fund material and coaches locally to organise weekly sports lessons and holiday camps.

Which organisations are we supporting?

Currently we are helping to set up a youth coaching organisation in Rwanda. We will be following the curriculum and training by World Athletics and the UCI. Athletics and cycling is at the heart of our project.

ATHLETICS AND CYCLING ARE AT THE HEART OF OUR PROJECTS

Endurance | Hurdles | Sprinting  | Shotput | Discus | Javelin | Long jump | Triple Jump | Racewalking

WE COMPETE

Our aim is to compete at national level – the aim is not performance but participating to promote team spirit and a sense of belonging. Who knows, we might have the next biggest start in Africa? But this is not our aim. If we can provide purpose and opportunities, and lead them to a healthy lifestyle – our job is done.
