However sport is a powerful tool and platform to strengthen social ties, networks, engage the community and promote positive messages. Though CameroonFDP girls were defeated 3 V 1, it was a tough match, kudos to all our Donors for supporting our girls program.

DSC06209 Sport participation offers girls an opportunity to build their self-esteem, courage and self-efficacy. It is a place where they can take up leadership positions and through sport programs girls’ belief in their own ability increases. This translates into everyday life – it encourages them to take initiative, raise their voices and attempt things they never assumed were possible. When community members see girls achieve in sport, they often recognize their potential to achieve in other domains.
