In 2012, Girls & Football SA – the not-for-profit I founded alongside Sonia Bianchi – was registered in South Africa. Girls & Football SA is an award-winning not for profit organization that focuses on the development of girls and young women through sport, media and education.
I launched Girls and Football SA to promote football (or soccer) for girls, to organize educational workshops, and to conduct outreach to the general public. Our main goal is to change attitudes about girls and women in South Africa through our educational program that tackles destructive stereotypes.
It’s been an incredible journey and we are honored to have worked with so many amazing girls, women, boys and men. Our next big challenge is a book on gender and how to work with boys and men to create safe spaces. Stay tuned for more!
