Seven days to go... Just awaiting my Visa and then I'll be ready to fly!
My colleagues osoya george (Kenya) and Kevin Boucal (The Gambia) run sustainable projects that benefit the lives of girls and boys (emphasis on female empowerment); that support the environment and enables communities to become self-sufficient and economically stable.
Football is the most watched, played, and supported sport across the world.
With the increase in popularity amongst girls and the increased acceptance of female football - it becomes a tool for change.
Football provides many social, emotional, and physical benefits and, it can also be used as a driving force to increase gender equality and to ensure that the needs of girls are being recognised, understood, and supported.
Their projects increase the visibility and opportunities for girls but also recognise the needs of girls and women by listening to them, becoming their advocates and allies, and through education within the communities they reside.
