Sports for Development: One step at a time with PACES

Sports is an integral and useful part of children’s lives and development, even more so in underprivileged locations; it connects people across borders and motivates them to be fair and perform to the best of their ability, regardless of the discipline. It is an area Deutsche Bank strongly engages in.

Here in the Middle East, our Deutsche Bank Middle East Foundation has collaborated with many Sports-focused NGOs in the past to aid in the physical, emotional and social development of children, one of which that we have consistently supported is the Palestine Association for Children’s Encouragement of Sports, better known as PACES.

PACES is a UK based charity established in 2006, with the aim of providing healthy, structured after- school sports programs for Palestinian girls and boys aged 7-16 years living in refugee camps in some of the most marginalized and vulnerable areas in Palestine, Jordan, and Lebanon. The Deutsche Bank Middle East Foundation has been a proud sponsor and supporter of PACES since 2013, working on projects across these three locations with the aims of providing children with access to safe playgrounds and enhancing their well-being and social skills. The projects have also supported coaches on how to better serve their communities through the use of sports.

Since 2013, Deutsche Bank’s grants have supported 5,492 children, 204 coaches and 74 assistant coaches.
