Mercedes-Benz India reinforced its commitment towards society by using the power of sports to bring about a change amongst the underprivileged children. Fostering its association with Laureus Sport for Good for the second year, Mercedes-Benz India will fund developmental programmes for two new NGOs- Naz Foundation and Slum Soccer. In addition MercedesBenz India will continue to fund existing Laureus-supported partners Oscar Foundation and YUWA.

 

Strengthening its association with India, Laureus Sport for Good has announced Indian cricket star Yuvraj Singh as a Laureus Ambassador. Laureus Sport for Good supports children and young people, using the power of sport to help them overcome violence, discrimination and disadvantage, proving sport’s ability to change the world. The global organisation supports more than 100 programmes in 35 countries.

 

Said Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India: “If steered by leaders with the right intent and attitude, sport can be a positive, character-building experience for the youth of a country. As the inventors of the automobile, Mercedes-Benz has always focused on creating a positive influence in the lives of people worldwide. By taking this association forward with our global partner Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, we intend on pursuing our brand philosophy with greater rigour by using the power of sports as a social development tool. By bringing on board two more reputed organizations–NAZ Foundation and Slum Soccer, we are hopeful of seeing greater opportunities to realize the hidden potential of the youth of this country.”

 

Commented Andy Griffiths, Global Director at Laureus Sport for Good: “At Laureus Sport for Good, we know that sport enables children and young people to overcome violence, discrimination and disadvantage in their lives. With the invaluable help and support of Mercedes-Benz India, we now have the opportunity to support more fantastic programmes here in India, using sport to support children, particularly girls, to go further in education and play a full role in their communities.”
