I am Mwiza Njobvu from Zambia I was born on the 19th of May, 1989 and completed secondary education in 2007. I play basketball and I enjoy doing that.Go Sisters has helped me realize that girls and boys are equal and I have discovered that I can do things that I thought were only done by boys. Go Sisters has helped me learn how to use my spare time wisely and how to fight peer pressure, Go Sisters has also taught me how to change the lives of others. From the time I joined Go Sisters, I have won confidence, I have made friends, trained as Youth peer leader whose acquired knowledge is meant for the benefit of all.

EduSport through Go Sisters has helped me complete my secondary education and I am working at St. Patrick’s Girls School where I am running Sports programmes for a grade 6 class. I have formed a basketball team and I am about to form a Soccer team. My girls enjoy Sport and all our EduSport programmes. Many thanks to all the people that have helped me, especially those that donate towards Go Sisters,the committed Peer Leaders in Zambia and the Great EduSport Family. Indeed this project aims to contribute to the achievement of the MDG3 in Zambia - promoting gender equity and empowerment - by increasing the number of us girls in the target communities adopting leadership roles at the community and district levels. I stand to inspire and lead a number of girls. Lets Go Sisters, we can do it.
