MISSION

Using sport and the Olympic Values to promote gender equity in communities impacted by genocide.

VISION

Building a global community in which boys and girls positively challenge and change gender norms.

VALUES

Rooted in the belief that sport can be a powerful catalyst for social change, KPI uses the powerful Olympic value of Fair Play to inspire and teach.  Fair Play means: respect, community, contribution, opportunity and moral courage –  these Fair Play characteristics motivate Olympic athletes and rural Rwandans alike to build more gender equitable societies.

 HISTORY 

Three-time winter Olympian Tracy Evans was inspired by a volunteer trip she took to Africa. She experienced first hand the positive impact sport had on the impoverished youth with whom she worked. Seeing how little access these children have to sports, she returned to the United States determined to create a year-round community sports education program for kids in developing countries. Recognizing the power of sports from her own experience as an Olympic athlete, Evans wanted to start a nonprofit organization that would challenge gender norms through using sport and interactive discussion.
