United Through Sport Wins Gender Equality Award!

Years of dedication to transforming lives through sport and championing gender equality have paid off! We received the Sport for Social Change Network (SSCN) Africa Gender Equality Award!

The Sport for Social Change Network (SSCN) Africa in partnership with the Leading Like Mandela organization hosted the first-ever SSCN Africa Awards. We attended the event with 138 grassroots organizations from 13 different African countries. We were recognized for our dedication to Gender Equality and our drive to create social impact through sport. 

We were selected for our commitment to female empowerment in our Girls Unite project where we provide a girls-only space where girls are encouraged to build their self-confidence. Our girls enter the project with limited confidence and leave with goals, confidence and the ability to make their voices heard. 

Athenkosi Mayinje (Siyaphakama Program Coordinator) attended the awards as our United Through Sport representative and said, "I am really happy and proud of our organization for winning the first award of the SSCN awards. I also started as a student in the organization and now I'm here collecting the award on behalf of the organization. It's amazing and we will continue helping young people."

We are proud to be recognized with so many other top-tier sport for development organizations and will use this recognition to continue to push to break barriers for young girls in our communities.
