When & Where
Kids Play International
To use sport as a catalyst to promote gender equity in communities impacted by genocide.
In 2008, three time Olympian and National Champion in Freestyle Skiing (aerials), Tracy Evans was encouraged by her mother to take a volunteer trip to Africa. After spending two weeks in an orphanage playing sports that were familiar to the children as well as introducing them to some new sports, she realized just how much she had learned from being involved in sport. She also saw first-hand the effects of genocide on communities and specifically the impact on gender roles, relationships and inequality for boys and girls in those communities. She left wonderinghow much these children could learn through sport, if provided with the opportunity; values synonymous with Olympic ideals such as fair play, mutual respect and solidarity. Evans returned from Africa and founded the nonprofit organization Kids Play International (KPI) in 2008 with the mission of using sport as a catalyst to promote gender equity in communities impacted by genocide.
Kids Play Int'l was founded in 2008.
