We are delighted to share, thanks to your support, that we have completed a volleyball court built in collaboration with a school community. This will be the first of many.
You may be wondering how volleyball supports the women and girls of Nepal.
Volleyball, as a sport, has the power to bridge boundaries and create positive social change. In Nepal, where volleyball is a national sport,the game can play a significant role in engaging women and girls, empowering them to become active participants in their communities.
Volleyball promotes physical health. By participating in volleyball, women in Nepal can improve their physical well-being, increase their endurance, and develop essential motor skills. Regular physical activity can also reduce the risk of chronic diseases and enhance overall quality of life.
Volleyball creates teamwork and cooperation. Through participation in volleyball, women and girls in Nepal can enhance interpersonal skills, work collaboratively towards a common goal, and feel a sense of unity. The teamwork and camaraderie fostered through volleyball can extend beyond the court.
Engaging in sports like volleyball can help boost self-confidence and self-esteem among women. As they develop skills and improve their performance on the court, players gain a sense of accomplishment and pride. This confidence can transfer into other areas of their lives.
Volleyball offers a platform to challenge and break traditional gender stereotypes. By participating in a sport often associated with men, women and girls can challenge societal expectations and demonstrate their capabilities. This can shift attitudes towards gender roles, encouraging greater gender equality and inclusivity.
Through organized volleyball programs, women can access educational opportunities, scholarships, and vocational training. Participating in volleyball can nurture leadership skills among women and girls. As they take on roles such as team captains, coaches, or organizers, women gain valuable leadership experience and develop qualities such as decision-making, communication, and problem-solving. This is why our program is not just about building a court it is about developing volleyball programs as well.
Volleyball can serve as a vehicle for social inclusion, bringing together women from diverse backgrounds and fostering unity. It offers a platform for women and girls to interact, share experiences, and build supportive networks.
By embracing volleyball as a tool for empowerment, our project can pave the way for gender equality, social change, and the overall well-being of girls and women.
We appreciate your ongoing support and look forward to keeping you posted.
