Celebrate Philippe Gilbert’s birthday and support the Friendship Games!

Every day, I realize how lucky I am to be with the people I love and also to live my passion. Sport has brought me much more than victories, it allowed me to discover new people, new cultures and to open myself to the world.

That’s why I decided to dedicate my birthday to a cause that is dear to me: the use of Sport as a tool for development and peace.

Member of the Champions for Peace club, the international athletes’ collective, which works to make sport a tool of dialogue and social cohesion, I count on your support to finance the organization of the next Friendship Games, organized by Peace and Sport, in Uvira in the Democratic Republic of Congo!

Join me ! Your participation will have a decisive impact for more than 300 children who will share 3 days of smiles around sports and cultural activities!

From 5 € to 500 € each donation counts!

Thank you for your support !

The Friendship Games are part of the “Great Lakes Program” created in 2008 by Peace and Sport, whose goal is to create bonds of fraternity through sport, between communities characterized by fragile and sometimes hostile relationships.

Since 2010, the Great Lakes Friendship Games has established itself as a major peace meeting through sport on the African continent. This event brings together more than 200 young people from Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda each year, around cross-border sporting events, punctuated by cultural activities and awareness workshops on peace and dialogue.

The Friendship Games this year will take place from 17 to 19 August in Uvira, DRC.
