ON THE BALL

Our Students With Dreams (SWD) programme keeps bearing good fruit! We are proudly witnessing the growth and use of skills from SWD and here is one of the many highlights shown from our alumni this year.

 

Baller Kunthazi aimed at challenging social constructions on the roles and capabilities of girls. Maya and her partner Samuel started the project through ArtGlo’s Students With Dreams (SWD) programme in 2018 to engage girls through playing football and other sporting activities which are considered to be only for males to help them broaden their horizons on what girls can do. Following the success of the project, Maya was selected as a young leader to participate in the International University Sport Federation (FISU) academy and is now the FISU ambassador to Malawi. She has continued her work in encouraging girls to be involved in sporting activities by engaging people from local communities. She attributes her skills in leadership and innovation to her experience with Students with Dreams as she had the platform to expand her ideas.

“I have learnt how to run and manage a project – how to communicate, approach potential funders and all these things I have learnt through SWD and I am still using these skills. I am using all my skills both locally and internationally and people are welcoming my ideas. I use sport as a tool for change as ArtGlo uses art and I believe that through these tools you can address very big issues in society.” – Maya

 

Recently Maya was invited to attend the FISU General Assembly in Italy where she was given a platform to talk about her Baller Kunthazi project to sport and university delegates from around the world. She is extremely excited and passionate to connect Malawian youth to score scholarships that allow them to expand their sports talents internationally and bring the skills back home so that other youth in Malawi can benefit from them. She has given an award form the FISU head for her work in Ballar Kunthanzi. She is currently working to set up the next phase of the project.
