Empowering Women and Girls through Sport

Sports has the potential to empower women in developing countries and bring about significant social, economic and environmental change particularly in areas with severe poverty and gender inequality.

The Hide Community Trust supports the Young Sables Soccer Academy which is a community soccer club promoting female participation in the community by girls ages 11-18 years. The academy provides opportunities for girls to improve their leadership and decision making skills and encourages women participation in a sport which has previously been dominated by males.  The academy in partnership with the Trust is hoping to implement a feeding scheme as a targeted social safety net to improve food security at a household level in the community.
