Our Champion for Peace

LADJI DOUCOURÉ

As a Champion for Peace, I want to show young people in marginalized areas that it is possible to build and emancipate themselves through sport and its values, such as fair play. The objective of a Champion for Peace is to inspire these young people and give them a role model to follow.


Ladji Doucouré is a World Champion french hurdler. He’s now willing to give back to society what sport has given him, notably by promoting athletics in marginalized areas and toward young people by being the mentor of the Golden Blocks association.
Ladji Doucouré also participated in the Caravan for Peace, which travelled throughout Senegal from 16 to 19 November 2017 to meet children, families and associations in order to promote the values of solidarity through sport, inspire young people and provide material support in areas affected by precariousness. He organized an athletics competition for children from a remote village.
He becomes a Champion for Peace to promote the values of sport toward young people and share his experience. By this way, young people can plan their future life with more serenity..
