Summary

In Chiapas, women's conditions are limited in their access to education, health, recreation and public spaces. Women from an early age must engage in housework and be prepared for the fulfillment of the role of being mothers. We find sports as a tool that improves development and physical well-being and strengthens leadership, teamwork and companionship. To achieve our goal of empowering more than 50 indigenous young women, we need to form in basketball.

Challenge

In Chiapas, women's conditions are limited in their access to education, health, recreation and public spaces. Women from an early age must engage in housework and be prepared for the fulfillment of the role of being mothers. This situation has a bearing on the high rates of teenage pregnancy and marital unions at an early age, a phenomenon that in many cases arises from negative cultural practices such as the sale of girls and adolescents, the normalization of sexual abuse & gender inequality.

Solution

We find sports as a tool that improves development and physical well-being and strengthens leadership, teamwork and companionship. We need to form basketball teams and provide them with professional sports advice to increase their skills, in addition to the acquisition of the necessary sports equipment and the rehabilitation of the courts in community and school spaces within the regions of Los Altos and La Selva, in Chiapas.

Long-Term Impact

The project empowers young indigenous women, so that as they take the basketball courts, they are also able, with the strengthening they obtain from their work with IDEAS Ch'ieltik, to "take the field" of their lives and of their communities
