Introduction SCORE

This section is based on input from Suzanne van Esser, SCORE NL.

SCORE was established in South Africa in 1991 and became active in Namibia in 2000, in Zambia in 2002 and in the Netherlands as well (officially) in 2003. In the Netherlands SCORE NL supports the SCORE organisations in southern African by recruiting and training volunteers and by contributing manpower and funding. Over the years SCORE has learned that investing in sports is necessary to operationalise sports effectively for development purposes. SCORE's mission is therefore to use sports to help young people acquire valuable skills and obtain opportunities to be successful and contribute to their community.
