Center for International Development

Sport for Social Change Grant

The Sport for Social Change (SSC) program in Tajikistan is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. The program’s main objective is to help teachers learn how to use the game of soccer to develop citizenship, leadership, conflict resolution skills, and healthy living habits in youth. Lindsey Blom, Assistant Professor of Physical Education, is the Project Manager for SSC. The Center for International Development will provide all necessary logistical support for the project team, including making international travel arrangements, assisting with visa applications and receiving visitors from Tajikistan to the United States.
