Empowerment in our International 360 Sports and Education Program
Through our sports and empowerment workshops, our goals are to strengthen voices, build confidence and help every girl to believe she deserves to DREAM BIG. Why is this important? In developing countries, more often than not, boys are deemed more important than girls AND because of this girls miss out on opportunities linked to life building skills that can lead to stronger decision making as a teen to an adult. Empowering girls to speak and act with self-confidence can develop character skills that lead to stronger independent decision making at home, in their school hallways, and in their social circles. One choice can mean they won't become a statistic that states nearly 1 in 20 Paraguayan women have given birth by the age of 20 and in rural areas, ¼ of these girls are 14 and under.
(Mortality rates in Paraguay are high due to underweight births and improper resources.)
BELIEVING YOU ARE VALUED & CREATED WITH A PURPOSE IS HALF THE BATTLE.
