International Inspiration is the official international legacy programme of the 2012 London Olympic Games. It's a partnership between UNICEF, UK Sport and the British Council. It's reached 12 million children and young people in 20 countries around the world. These photos show a few examples of our work.
Through International Inspiration, our aim is to get young people around the world, particularly those in developing countries, involved in sport and play. Sport gives children and young people opportunities to make friends, challenge themselves and enjoy just being children. But it can also help promote equality, give young people a voice, and inspire them to become leaders in their own communities.
