Girls in Action: This project uses football and netball to create safe spaces for girls to come together, to grow in confidence, develop leadership, access education and communication skills and to learn about their rights and the protection available to them. Working at a community level, SIA trains girls to become ‘Girls in Action Ambassadors.’ These Ambassadors then provide sports and life skills sessions with young girls, tackling sensitive issues which would traditionally be taboo, like HIV/AIDS, early marriage, teenage pregnancy, sexual and reproductive rights and gender based violence. Working both in school and in their local communities, the Ambassadors act as positive role models for their peers and help to empower and equip them to stand up for their rights and make informed decisions about their future. The project has a budget of $150 per child per year towards education support.

1. Education for 50 girls from vulnerable communities.

3. Contribute to the reduction of early marriages
4. Contribute to reduction of gender based violence
5. Enhance knowledge level in HIV and AIDS, Sexual Reproductive health and rights.
