Pledge United is delighted to announce that we have been nominated for the second year in a row for a Beyond Sport award. The Beyond Sport awards are seen as one of the most prestigious awards that organisations within sport for development can win. Therefore to be nominated for two years in a row, considering that over 300 organisations apply each year, is a huge achievement for the team at Pledge United.
“We were extremely proud that Pledge United was shortlisted for the Beyond Sport in 2018 and 2019 “Sport for Peace and Social Justice” Award, in recognition of their tremendous efforts and achievements in tackling gender equality in Indonesia through the use of football. Our Foundation’s trustees were hugely impressed by the model and curriculum of this organisation, and felt there was huge scope and potential to expand the programming further. It is our hope that as Pledge United continues to grow and expand, they will make a hugely significant impact in communities where gender inequality is rife. We are encouraged by the fact that Inspire have achieved similar success with smaller projects in the past, and we are sure that Upshot’s support will help them transition to getting further supporters on board for this fantastic project.” Nick Keller Founder and CEO Beyond Sport.
