Advancing Girls' Rights Through Sports

Commitment by

Women Win

In 2011, Women Win committed to building open-sourced tools and providing innovative services that accelerate the work of advancing girls' and women's rights through sport. The tools and services include online guidelines, curricula, and workshops on empowering girls economically through sports and on removing barriers that prevent economic empowerment like gender based violence. These help program managers and coaches design and implement high quality sports programs to address these issues. With these tools and services, women's organizations, sport-for-development organizations, and sports institutions have the capacity to expand, design, develop, and implement high quality sports programs and advance women's rights. Consequently this will lead to 100,000 girls and young women accessing high quality sports programs.
