Sophie Denis is a key player, role model and source of inspiration to promote sport as powerful tool for peace, education and development, values in line with FPCD mandate. Having recently been named Goodwill Ambassador for Nepal Tourism 2011, the FPCD is honoured to welcome Ms. Denis to the Foundation's International Advisory Board.
FPCD and Sophie Denis are together developing a Youth Program to coincide with her role as Goodwill Ambassador in 2011 which will harmonize Ms. Denis' people's skills and sports' background with FPCD impressive development projects and both parties desire to advance diplomatic relationships with humanitarian actors for youth and deliver a strong message of hope.
FPCD's Youth Program 2011 will support youth initiatives in "post conflict" countries and aim to create 6 youth centers in 6 different communities along with Sophie's alpine challenge of climbing 6 peaks above 26,000ft in 6 months. This powerful project, will be a life challenging experience for our Youth, delivering a strong message of hope and beyond in line with Ms. Denis' motto : everything is possible.
This ambitious program is designed to reach a broad audience by launching an awareness campaign with media outlets, establishing keynote speaker roles in local and international events, and developing educational programs in the US schools to spread the word.
