Power of sport as a game-changer for women and children

Girls and women have traditionally faced gender barriers when playing sport and dreaming of growing as professional football players.

Sport can empower girls by strengthening their confidence and self-esteem and building skills that are essential for every child’s future, such as strategic thinking, teamwork, leadership, confidence, discipline and learning to bounce back from defeat. It also promotes the values of inclusion, respect for self and others, fairness and cooperation; and it helps improve physical and mental health, as well as performance in school.
