Goal for Equality Tournament - Workshop

During the months of October, November and December of year 2017 the "Goal for Equality" project carried out actions involving students, educators, young people and the community in order to promote gender equality and the empowerment of girls. The main actions carried out were:

  • Training meetings of the "Young Leaders" monitors on gender equality;
  • Training meeting of the educators team on gender equality;
  • Futsal classes (involving conversation circles);
  • Leisure activities on Saturdays;
  • 2017 Leisure Street;
  • Walking Event;
  • Goal for Equality Tournament;
  • Campaign on the 16 days of Activism for the End of Violence against Women.

As a highlight, we mention the Goal for Equality Tournament, a women's futsal championship that took place in October. The event, in its 2nd edition, aims to be an affirmative action for the empowerment of girls and women. This year the tournament gathered 14 teams, totaling 180 participants. In addition to the games, there were parallel activities complementing the program, such as: Workshop on Sport and Gender; photography activity "Click Diva"; dance workshop, painting exhibition "AquarElas" and recreational activities. The event had an excellent attendance, with more than 400 people between participants and spectators.

Another action that deserves to be highlighted is the Campaign on the 16 days of Activism for the End of Violence against Women. This campaign happened between November 25 and December 10, through the social networks of the Gol de Letra Foundation. The material produced for the campaign was developed inside Gol de Letra by our young people guided by our educators.

The main challenge in the period was to articulate the community to assure a good participation in the Goal for Equality Tournament. The 16 young leaders of the Goal for Equality project played a key role in mobilizing the women teams that participated in the games. They had the task of identifying female soccer teams to attend the festival. In addition to identifying, they had to stimulate their participation in the event. Challenge fulfilled successfully!

The "Goal for Equality" Project brings to the centre of the work done in Vila Albertina a very current topic that used to be little discussed in this territory, gender equity.

Fundação Gol de Letra have decided to work with this subject because believe that gender equality is not only a basic human right, but its implementation has enormous socioeconomic implications. To bring this subject to the comunity, "Goal for Equality" project use the football langage and works to increase the participation of girls in football.

Relatorio 6/ Report 6

During the months of March, April and May, the actions of the Goal for Equality Project were mainly focused on the dissemination of activities, registration of participants and training / preparation of the team of educators and young leaders.

 

As achievements, we can highlight the team's participation in the actions carried out in March, which aimed to strengthen the proposal that sport contributes to the development of girls' self-esteem and leadership; it is fundamental to dismantle gender stereotypes in order to contribute to reduce inequalities.

 

Regarding the training of the team, we held the first teachers' assistants meeting, with the purpose of raising awareness among the participants about Gender Equality issues, based on the reflection on the historical production of Gender differences and the impact on the lives of girls and women.

 

Since the beginning of the year, the project has been performed with 11 classes of Futsal and Sports School, in five service centers of the Open Game Program: Municipal School Martin Francisco Ribeiro de Andrada; Municipal School of Primary Education João Ramos - Pernambuco - Abolitionist; Municipal School of Primary Education João Ramos - Pernambuco - Abolitionist; NED - Nucleus of Development and Sport; Lions Club of Tucuruvi.

 

So far, the project is serving 216 students, 137 in Futsal classes and 79 in Sports School classes, which also work with Futsal. Current gender proportionality is 30% girls and 70% boys, according to the following:

  • 105 boys in Futsal classes = 77%
  • 32 girls in Futsal classes = 23%
  • 46 boys in Sports School classes = 58%
  • 33 girls in Sports School classes = 42%

 

The challenge continues to be to increase the participation of girls in all classes. This is a difficulty found in our country. For this reason, we believe that the development of projects focused on gender equality are essential for the empowerment of girls and women.
