ENABLING GIRLS AT RISK TO BREAK BARRIERS THROUGH SPORT

Theory of Change

       Holistic
Programming  

Challenges harmful gender norms 

And encourages girls to aim high

Sport unifies in crisis 

Girls are more likely to progress beyond primary education when they are empowered

Only 56 percent of Sierra Leonean girls aged 15 to 24 are literate 

Compared to 73% of boys 

Many girls will not complete primary  education

because of gender inequalities
worsened by poverty
exposure to harms
and social instability

Every girl and boy have

an equal right to education 

This is enshrined in international law

And the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

Our Formula Is Simple

Sport helps minds thrive,

fosters empowerment, 

and aspiration  

to achieve great things 

irrespective of gender

Help us continue our work 
Beyond Inequality
 
We see empowerment as the best route to equality - leading to higher literacy and sustainable development.
 
Education is by far the greatest measurement of gender equality, and by doing sport we can inspire a girl to achieve whatever a boy can too.
