Dear Supporter,


Thank you for your ongoing commitment to women's and girls' access to sport in Libya. Over the past year HERA has expanded on their commitment to empower women to tackle gender norms through feminist leadership and community building. HERA's leadership values are based on honesty, respect, diversity, empathy, and commitment to achieve their vision and beliefs. HERA has focused on growing their community using these values and the contributions they receive from you.


Despite some challenges such as finding safe, indoor fields for their sessions there have been numerous successes.  Examples of these are:

  • HERA has engaged 107 girls, women and non-binary participants which is an increase from the previous year.
  • The participants are building better habits and breaking bad ones due to the increased focus on life skills in the programming.
  • By the programmes identifying different types of sports and giving knowledge about them, the participants have also been able to identify new hobbies which enhance their lives.  


The funding has also been used to support in teaching roles and skills through camps, life skills sessions and sports trainings in volleyball, basketball and football.  The sports drills are designed by the coaches to build on the practical skills and keep the participants excited and having fun while still challenged. Yet these sports drills also help them develop critical skills such as communication, teamwork, resilience and more. The life-skills sessions also provide a safe space for the participants to share, learn, ask, and encourage each other to overcome struggles and to challenge the gender inequality they deal with in their daily lives.


Thank you for your continued support, your contributions really help to provide HERA with the means to keep implementing the impactful work they do.

Dear Supporter,

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to women's and girls' access to sport in Libya. As you know, sport is a powerful tool for girls and women to challenge gender norms and stereotypes, to regain ownership of their bodies, to experience joy, freedom and rebuild their lives after trauma. Especially with COVID-19 continuing to threaten girls’ and women’s access to the benefits of sport, the need to support the work of HERA is greater than ever.

Despite the social and economic turmoil, HERA continues to provide girls and women access to a safe network and a sense of meaning and purpose. Furthermore, your contributions enable HERA to continue bringing some level of relief to Libyan girls and women.

Thank you!

Dear Supporter,

For women and girls, sport is a powerful tool to challenge gender norms and stereotypes, to regain ownership of their bodies, to experience joy, freedom and rebuild their lives after trauma. We would like to thank you for your ongoing commitment and support to HERA, and to the adolescent girls and young women in Libya participating in their programmes. 

COVID-19 continues to threaten girls’ and women’s access to the benefits of sport. In Libya, adolescent girls and young women continue to be affected in a myriad of ways, including adverse effects on their education, personal safety, bodily autonomy, health, peer support, social connections and economic prospects. 

Despite the social and economic turmoil, HERA continues to break down cultural barriers and unite girls and young women through sport, providing them with a safe network and a sense of meaning and purpose.

Your much needed support enables HERA to continue bringing some level of relief to Libyan girls and women. Thank you!

Dear Supporter,

On our previous report we described how during health pandemics such as COVID-19, adolescent girls worldwide can experience intensified inequity and violations to their human rights.

In Libya, adolescent girls and young women continue to be affected in a myriad of ways, including adverse effects on their education, personal safety, bodily autonomy, health, peer support, social connections and economic prospects. The need for your support continues to be essential in bringing some level of relief to Libyan girls and women.

Unfortunately, as is the case in many regions of the world, boys in Libya find ways to be part of outdoor activities significantly easier than girls.Your support enables HERA to continue engaging and supporting girls in their communities in different ways.

Thank you very much for your kind support and for believing in HERA's vision to break down cultural barriers and unite girls and young women through sport.

Dear Supporter,

Every day, adolescent girls worldwide experience inequity and violations to their human rights. In humanitarian settings, and during health pandemics such as Covid-19, these can be intensified. In a region where Covid-19 has hit the hardest, adolescent girls and young women continue to be affected in a myriad of ways, including adverse effects on their education, personal safety, bodily autonomy, health, peer support, social connections and economic prospects. Within this context, there is a need for your support greater than ever before.

Your donation supports HERA to invest in institutional capacity strengthening and strive to retain the wonderful staff, volunteers and coaches that implement their programmes. At the same time, your donation enables HERA to explore options on how to best support the girls who participate in their programmes and their communities.

Thank you for supporting HERA’s advances in breaking down cultural barriers and uniting girls and young women through sport.
