The sessions aim to increase access to information, awareness and education on leadership and life skills, put sports values into practice and create an enabling environment where the girls and beneficiaries will be willing to reflect positive attitudes and disseminate further the values and behavioural aspects they have acquired.

 

Description

The training seeks to help develop a foundation for teen to be more conscious about themselves and more aware of their abilities. It provides them with guidelines for tackling and achieving personal goals with more self-assurance.

More than 300 girls and community members attended the leadership training and the trainings are still ongoing.  The training enabled girls to acquire leadership skills, realize that they as athletes have a lot of leadership qualities, understand their roles in initiating positive change, review and optimize their own leadership behaviour.
