The potential

Our Goal

SPEED dares to dream where our nation and our sports people could be if they had the facilities, the science, the infrastructure, the discipline and the opportunities that are taken for granted by many other countries. Our team know they have the capability, the capacity and the commitment to facilitate the use of sport towards ushering in an era of peace with prosperity,  pride and belonging. We know our nation has the potency. We know we need only provide the foundation and the triggers, the policy, the plan and the process.

 SPEED takes on the dual role of creating the enabling environment for Sports Performance Development and Sports for Peace and Development as overarching drivers to create a stable and developed Sri Lanka. Towards this, it it will  work in tandem with multiple partners including international sport bodies, the UN, the Commonwealth, academic, research and media organizations.

Welcome To Speed

The civil organization Sport for Peace, Education, Empowerment and Development (SPEED) was established as a national Non-Governmental Organization via an act of parliament by a dedicated team of young men and women who had recognized and noted the fact that there was no single agency at the time of its inception that was capable of addressing the many opportunities to leverage sports for peace and development (SDP) nor the capabilities or networking potential to address the grassroots gaps in engineering the enabling environment for sports performance development (SPD).

In formulating the idea for SPEED, most crucially, this team recognized that civil agency has the greatest potency to a) engage for outreach b) engage for policy coherence c) create the most conducive enabling environment for triggering a groundswell for performance excellent d) obtain the assistance of multiple local and international experts to support such an initiative and e) create the infrastructure, impact strategies and process system required for development of sport, sports research and SDP.
