WKF President Antonio Espinós said:

“We are truly honoured to be nominated for the Peace and Sport Awards. The Guardian Girls Global Karate programme is one of the most significant and ambitious initiatives of the World Karate Federation, and we are grateful to have two phenomenal partners such as KIF and UNFPA in this journey.

“We truly believe that we can make a difference through Karate, and we are hoping that thousands of girls and women will be empowered by the Guardian Girls Global Karate programme. This nomination is the confirmation that we are on the right path.”
