what we want to achieve 

Our mission is to provide meaningful ways for women and girls to connect and thrive across 2 continents; Europe & The Middle East, using sport and education.

 

We want to actively participate in changing the status quo in these two areas, and we aim to provide ways to help people participate in that goal too.

OUR OBJECTIVES IN AFGHANISTAN AND PAKISTAN ARE TO USE THE POWER OF SPORT AND EDUCATION AS A TOOL TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT THE SOCIAL ISSUES FACED BY MANY WOMEN AND GIRLS WITHIN SOCIETY.

The primary focus of our Girl Power workshops are centred around the importance of having a healthy lifestyle, and raising the awareness on the side effects of child marriages, from the impact on the life the individual as well as that on society.
