What is Girls In Sport?
Girls In Sport International is a charity that is committed to encouraging both staff and students to continuously create, learn and grow. We promote and encourage diverse backgrounds and cultures of our instructors and participants alike within our curriculum.
What do we do?
We coordinate a sustainable, community-led project in Sierra Leone and have developed a Sports and Literacy Programme there. The programme is currently operating five days a week from Monday – Friday running two hours a day. Each session is composed of a one -hour slot for sports, followed by an hour winding down slot offering homework support, educational activities and the arts. Trained volunteers from the UK support the programme and local staff, by bringing fresh ideas, learning techniques, and introducing new sports games to learn. Without our volunteers, the programme would not be possible!
How Do We Select Our Beneficiaries?
Our balanced gender ethos fosters a comprehensive intake of children from the local community, regardless of religion or tribal background.
