Sports to Empower Women & Girls in Rwanda

Football for HIV/AIDS awareness raising/School Dropout Girls

In partnership with Right To Play/Rwanda we organized a football tournament that targeted school dropout girls from 35 sectors of Kigali City, aged between 15-25. The purpose was to mobilize them in matters relating to Reproductive Health, HIV AIDS & other diseases.

Also, we organized a walk/march for 150 women from 30 districts of the country (Rwanda), and a football tournament for 12 women teams& 8 men teams for the purpose of mobilizing Rwandan Women to be players in Good Governance and Democracy as they have power to make changes.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to all those who are directly or indirectly contributing to the successful achievement of our objectives. With your continued support we are quite sure that more will be achieved and challenges will be mitigated. Please let us know what you think about our project, and how we can strategically attract wider support.
