The project will make girls' football strong in Kigali City and Rwanda. The project will demonstrate the positive impact of gender in sport for social change.
AKWOF promotes girls and women’s rights and self-confidence through sport, especially football. We assist Rwandan women to have a forum for integration and reconciliation. We use sport to promote awareness among Rwandan women about the dangers of the HIV/AIDS Pandemic and provide a meeting point between the elite and uneducated women for exchange of ideas
AKWOF will train female trainers, coaches, referees and match commissioners. We will create the Women Soccer Federation and a professional women’s Football Team.
This project will make women’s football a catalyst for unity and reconciliation while creating a viable economic activity, thereby reducing poverty amongst women. We will show the impact of sport and social change.
