"How can we use sport to develop the leadership and economic empowerment of adolescent girls"
Sport can have a powerful effect on building the economic, emotional and physical self-determination of girls, as well as changing the cultural limits they face. This guideline shares powerful and effective examples of how sport has been used to develop the leadership and economic empowerment of adolescent girls and highlights practical programme design tips as well as important tools and resources.
The pathway to leadership and economic empowerment is not a linear progression through a step-by-step process of increasing responsibility, but instead a flexible pathway that moves a girl from player, to peer leader, to intern and finally, to employee or entrepreneur/self-employed. Women Win can support organisations to design sport programmes that incorporate these pathways and a variety of integrated development opportunities that will help adolescent girls on their journey to economic empowerment.
