Michelle Pinggera, International Chief of Staff at Goldman Sachs

In 2011, the partners of Goldman Sachs funded the Greenhouse Sports East London expansion, which allowed the charity to open programmes in 13 schools in Olympic boroughs in East London, and has enabled them to provide almost 200,000 hours of high quality sport training and mentoring to deserving young people across London.

This week, Greenhouse Sports and Goldman Sachs Gives have released a video to celebrate the success of that expansion. Through their incredible efforts, Greenhouse Sports has made a difference to thousands of young Londoners living in some of the capital’s most underprivileged boroughs.

At Goldman Sachs, we believe in supporting the communities in which we live and work, and that, as part of this, empowering young people and giving them the opportunity to develop their skills, build their confidence and unlock their potential is critical to ensuring a healthy and growing economy.

This is why Greenhouse Sports’ mission of using sport to engage and transform the lives of young people, and in doing so, helping to develop our next generation of leaders, resonates so strongly with Goldman Sachs.

In addition to supporting this expansion programme, we also feel privileged to be able to host a Greenhouse Sports Challenge at Goldman Sachs every summer, where we welcome young people from Greenhouse to take part in basketball and table tennis tournaments with people from Goldman Sachs. The atmosphere on the day is always fantastic, and we are looking forward to hosting our fourth tournament this summer.

We are very proud to help Greenhouse Sports continue its vital work, inspiring young people and transforming communities, and we look forward to its continued growth and success. We hope you enjoy the video.
