Challenge

Girls and women around the world are often unable to participate in daily life or given decision making power over their bodies and choices. Often, girls are not able to receive an education, given access to resources, or participate in sports. Sports for Development organizations have not reached their full potential. Many have created innovative strategies to promote girls' and women's leadership, but do not always have access to collaboration or knowledge transfer.

Solution

We firmly believe that Sports for Development in collaboration with education and health can provide spaces where girls feel safe, confident, and strong. Sports can help build the tools necessary to succeed, all while doing what youth love most: play. GIL provides a platform: (1) Improving the organizational capacity of established organizations; (2) Opportunities for knowledge sharing; (3) Enhancing global advocacy for women and girls' empowerment projects and organizations.

Long-Term Impact

Our platform helps scale the best ideas and accelerate transformation of the sports for development landscape to be more focused on gender, impact and resiliency. The goal is a world full of strong girls and safe communities. Together we can learn to improve on child protection, program design, understand our impact, and grow the resources we need to serve our communities.
