Education has been called a social vaccination against HIV, when girls stay in school they are much likely to become infected, that is the drive of CameroonFDP to keep more girls in school with our innovative approach to sports for development. 21 young girls participate in the training that took place at Saint Teresa primary school field despite the nature of the weather the girls were filled with enthusiasm to prove their worth in the beautiful game of football. One of our organization’s objectives is based on gender equality and training these girls to participate at a tournament is an opportunity for us to avoid them dropping out of school, unemployment, violence and Teen pregnancies some of the risk behaviors young girls continue to face.
The presence of the management team spurred and motivated the girls who were so flexible and willing to share their achievements and challenges both at home and at school while participating at the girls football program. Big thanks to Coach Kama and Harrison who are always present to mentor these girls.
