Women and girls’ participation in sports is an important social and economic empowerment tool. Women and girls acquire new professional networks, develop a sense of identity and access new opportunities to become more engaged in school and community life. In addition, sports serve as a vehicle to improve women’s and girls’ leadership roles and participation in decision-making and help to convene people across borders, cultures and belief systems. They can promote greater tolerance and understanding among individuals and communities and can challenge gender stereotypes and discriminatory attitudes, especially as they attend CameroonFDP Sessions every Wednesday.
