UK government is matching all the public money raised for international work up to £10 million.


Of all the money raised by the public this Sport Relief, the international spend will be matched by the UK government up to £10 million, to transform lives across the world’s poorest communities, supporting young people to make a successful transition into adulthood.

International Development Secretary Justine Greening said:

Sport Relief is changing lives, and we will help double the difference Sport Relief makes in some of the world’s poorest communities by matching donations pound for pound, up to £10 million.

This is going to help thousands of young people in Tanzania, Nepal and Nigeria remain in school, stay healthy and find good jobs. By working with young people from day one, Sport Relief will make sure that they have a say in building their own future.
