THF’s mission is to empower refugees and displaced persons worldwide by training them in the sport and martial art of taekwondo, bringing them physical and mental well-being as well as discipline, self-defense and self-belief. Through several projects, the Foundation supports refugees with necessary equipment, infrastructure and educational programs teaching the values of Olympism and global citizenship, while offering them a chance to evolve in the sport.
Committed to offer quality long-term or recurring projects to people caught in crisis, THF’s work is based on humanitarian principles and the idea that sport can help achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
THF values working in close collaboration with various stakeholders to ensure aligned field intervention. It is committed to regularly evaluate the effects of its operations, remaining accountable to its beneficiaries and donors.
The Code of Ethics for instructors and the Code of Conduct for students provide an essential framework of how to behave for both students and instructors, maximizing positive impact of THF’s academies on children and young people attending them. Both documents can be found below:
