Breaking Boundaries- Rompiendo Fronteras

By Mary McVeigh | Program Director

Until recently, no one had been able to put a number on exactly how limited sports opportunities are for girls are in Latin America. Recently, the Pan-American Health Organization decided to find out. In a study of Nicaraguan girls and boys, ninety percent of Nicaraguan girls reported barriers to participation in sport. The top three barriers: Safe places to play, equipment and resources, and parental permission. 

Soccer Without Borders in Nicaragua has been breaking down barriers to participation in sport for girls since 2008. The result is a girls-centered space that maximizes the power of "team" to empower the next generation of girls to demand access to opportunities...on the field and off. 

Check out our new video Rompiendo Fronteras- Breaking Boundaries to see that girls-centered space come to life, meet some of our coaches and leaders, and see the impact that you've made already. Today, please consider supporting Soccer Without Borders for the Global Giving Bonus Day! Global Giving is matching 30% of every donation starting right now until matching funds are gone. 

Thank you so much for giving these girls the opportunities they deserve, and for your continued support of SWB Granada, Nicaragua.

Sincerely,

Mary
