Zmajevo Gnijezdo

Biciklisticki Maraton Bihac - Srebrenica

There are so many aspects about cycling that contribute to the huge growth of this sport, but most would probably agree that the #1 reason has to do with long rides with friends.  One World Sports Association can connect you with cyclists from different cultures and religions across the world for one-day or multi-day rides.  Of course, the views are amazing, but most importantly, you will have the opportunity to befriend people from different backgrounds and learn to better appreciate our differences and similarities.

In 2019 One World Sports Association began working with a community in East Africa to foster relationship-building opportunities through sports. Our One World team has partnered with members of the local community to began to build a basketball/volleyball court. The One World team living in the community will have opportunities to use the court as a cross-cultural classroom to teach valuable life lessons and leadership skills through sports. One World Sports is seeking to raise $38,000 to complete the costs to construct the court. Please consider giving today.

During most summers the One World team heads south of the Texas border to Casa Hogar Children’s Home. The campus is located just about 15 miles west of the culturally-rich city of Matamoros, Mexico. The One World team holds week-long soccer clinics and recreation activities with the kids. This is one of our favorites!!!
