Vitaliy Klitschko and Wladimir Klitschko

The Klitschko brothers, UNESCO Champions for Sport.

Vitaly and Wladimir Klitschko were appointed UNESCO Champions for Sport in December 2006, in recognition of their outstanding achievements in sport and for their exemplary efforts in promoting UNESCO’s Programme “Education for Children in Need”. Created in 1992, the programme aims to offer a future to vulnerable children through education.

In 2003, the Klitschko brothers founded the “Klitschko Brothers Foundation”, which is active in fighting drug abuse and homelessness in Ukraine.

Also at home, they contributed to the creation of the International Sport Fund named “Sport – 21st Century”, which serves to foster confidence and hope among people through physical education and sport.

In their capacity as UNESCO Champions for Sport, the Klitschko brothers support UNESCO’s Programme “Education for Children in Need”. In the framework of this Programme, they have visited and supported numerous projects of UNESCO in Ukraine, Germany, Romania, Brazil and Namibia.
