Girls taking the lead!

HODI has been trying to engage girls for a long time and this year 2012
is the greatest of them all. Over 2,000 girls have been engaged through the
HODI Girls Champion Initiative and the local community including the mothers of
the girls are accepting that girls too can play football.

Over 10 schools have been involved in the school training program with
20 HODI coaches offering training in football and life skills. We made history
by engaging the girls and female teachers in the trainings and slowly things
changed with more girls coming on board each day.

In order to select a team to represent HODI in East Africa tournament,
30 girls were selected and 15 boys. The teams will be traveling to Moshi
Tanzania to participate in a tournament and what is important is the fact that
the HODI teams are led by girl’s coaches and team leaders for the first time
ever. Girls are coaching fellow girls and taking up leadership responsibilities
within the organization. We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your
continued support as we continue championing the rights of girls and women to
take up leadership.

“What I have learn in HODI are life lessons and I want to impart that
on other girls in the teams I coach” Dirre one of the girls coaches.
