Sports and recreation play a major role as an instrument for learning, teaching, conviviality, tolerance and solidarity, improving the leadership model within the community.

In alliance with other organizations, The Wayúu Taya Foundation develops physical education, sports and recreational programs that help indigenous children perform physical activities, contributing to their growth and supporting a healthy lifestyle.

With sports and recreation, we try to unite the different clans within this ethnicity, promoting traditional games in all of their forms in every community, under the safeguard of the Wayúu in the Media and Alta Guajira. Children in schools practice several sports, some which are traditional to their own community.
