We empower young voluntary leaders as football coaches, focusing on value based leadership, sexual & reproductive health and how they as effective and positive role models and coaches can empower young girls and change the playing field where they work, in order for girls to increase their opportunities to improve their own future. Read more about how we do that in Finland, Mozambique, Sweden and Zambia!
We promote girls' physical, psychological, sexual and emotional health. Our leaders coach, inspire and empower young girls several times a week. The coaches bring together and train girls in football teams that serve as a safe place where girls can unconditionally have fun, meet an inspiring role model and develop a stronger sense of self-confidence and self-esteem. Our coaches also transform the changing room talk into a constructive dialogue, enabling the girls to make informed decisions in questions concerning their future.

We create a safe environment where young coaches lead a positive development where everyone involved benefits: young girls, their families and society in general. Our coaches not only become important support for their players - but above all a role model in the area where they work. By using football the coaches reach a large group of youth as well as society in general, and can therefore change attitudes and structures without being frightening or provocative.
