EQUALITY

EMPOWERMENT

EDUCATION

In the fight against poverty, the most impactful way to make a difference is to focus on the empowerment and education of women and girls.  They are more likely to invest back into their families and those around them becoming agents for change in their own community.

Our goals are focused around creating opportunities for girls to gain the life skills needed to succeed in life ON and OFF the field.  We start by cultivating a community of FEMALE STUDENT ATHLETES who we believe can make a difference for years to come.   In our International 360 Sports and Education International Program, we create opportunities for girls to have access to an equal playing field, financial support to stay in school, and empower girls to believe in all the possibilities through empowerment workshops and mentoring.

In 2015, during a trip to our small rural town
in Paraguay we were told, "girls don't want to play soccer."   


In 2015, during a trip to our small rural town in Paraguay we were told, "girls don't want to play soccer."   


The truth was they weren't allowed to play and this is due to social stigmas which are not UNcommon in many areas outside of the US.  Girls around the world are not provided the same opportunities as boys and because of this are missing out on important life skills needed to succeed in life, simply because they are girls,  both on and off the field.

In 2016, we set out to create change and shift the cultural mindset to believing girls DO belong on the field.  Through our partnership with local schools, soccer clubs,  and community meetings we are creating opportunities for girls to dream bigger and walk towards a stronger future.


In 2019, Las Pionera's (The Pioneer's) ALL girls soccer team was formed in our small rural town of Coronel Bogado, Paraguay providing an opportunity for girls to have access to an equal playing field and space to play the beautiful game of soccer.

Today, girls are showing up to the field feeling proud to be a ’FEMALE soccer player’ instead of carrying the shame once taught by social stigmas on a male dominated playing field.

In many rural communities, many children don't complete school past 7th grade due to financial struggles and girls, more often than not, are first to lose this opportunity leaving them with little to no education.  In Paraguay, the retainment rate of girls in schools is low.  From completion of primary school to upper secondary school, the participation of girls drops 25 percent, from 86 to 61 percent.   

One COMMUNITY, one GIRL at a time we want to change that by ensuring essential school needs are met so education can be achieved.


Girls who participate in our 360 Sports and Education program will have the opportunity to apply for the financial support needed to continue their education. Working with their local school, our 360 Sports and Education scholarship program provides funds needed to ensure our participants have access to an equal playing field AND stay in school.  






Throughout the school year, attendance and grade performance is monitored, along with full participation on the field to stay eligible.  This requires a commitment from her entire family ensuring she is encouraged to be both, a student and an athlete at home.  

In addition, all scholarship recipients are required to 'give back' through local community service projects 3x a year.  This can be a commitment to a monthly clean sweep project, volunteering at local events, assisting the elderly, and more.  If all requirements are met and she is participating in our program the following year,  she has the opportunity to reapply for further assistance.
