AKWOS organized a sport tournament themed: “promoting young girls’ legal rights through sports”. The tournament brought together young girls footballers in football competitions and the disabled girls and women in seat ball competitions. Prior to this, a basic football coaching course for 35 female coaches in Rwanda took place as part of women empowerment through sport for social change project. Basing on achievements so far made, we are strongly of the view that sports is the most successful tool for women empowerment for social change, by enhancing health and well being, fostering self esteem and empowerment, facilitating social integration and inclusion, challenging gender norms and providing opportunities for leadership and achievement. We are humbly calling up on different donors, to support us, so as to make our project successful. We also need your opinions, suggestions and comments on how we can work together to attract wider support, and by so doing, we will be contributing to women empowerment. We take this opportunity to thank all our supporters and partners, while requesting their continued support and partnership.
