Launching the Girls Go Forward Project
Earlier this year we launched a new project: Girls Go Forward. In partnership with the Thope Foundation and their iSTEAM modules, and principals and sponsors at our schools, we began the Girls Go Forward Afterschool Clubs that was combined with the Boxgirls Maths and Sport Hubs. The girls enjoyed the combination of math, sports and the arts, which made for a dynamic experience.
First Holiday Club in Harare
Boxgirls was pleased to collaborate with a 3 primray schools for their first Holiday Club. We expanded on the initial Holiday Club model to include LEGO modules. We were so happy to see how engaged and curious the girls were in the technical side of the activities and share their learnings with others.
Standing for girls empowerment on Africa Day with CTV
In June, Boxgirls continued our community involvement on Africa Day. Because of our programming, Boxgirls was able to address a broader range of young people with our coverage on CTV! We were featured on the Ekse Youth Program for many to see and learn about what we do and the impact we have made thus far.

Boxgirls South Africa is now a proud partner of Girls in the Lead, an international network and e-learning platform that brings together women leaders in the area of girls sports for development to share resources to enhance our programming. Along with organizations in India, Sweden, Germany, South Africa, and the USA, we are continuing the global mission of empowering and enabling economically independent and socially resilient girls.
