The Sven Tumba Sport for Education Foundation was founded in 2006 by Sven Tumba, one of Sweden's greatest sports stars, together with among others ABB, Astra Zeneca and FIFA. During our first ten years, we have conducted a social and ambitious work focused in South Africa, including building schools and running sports programs. Sven saw sports as an ideal tool for the children to develop discipline, teamwork and responsibility - crucial qualities for achieving the overall goal: education.

Giving something back to the community was an important principle and endeavor of Sven, and we are proud to be able to carry on the work in his name.
