Girls Empowerment

In rural Punjab, girls and women have been suffering from systemic discrimination for decades. The preference for the male child is revealed in the dysmal gender ratio of the region.

We believe in equal rights for and equal opportunities for girls.To give them a head start, some of our programmes focus specifically on strengthening girls' confidence, building knowledge of their rights and educating them on sexual and reproductive health.

 

A major part of our football for development programming for girls is centered on the discussion and deconstruction of traditional gender roles and myths of female inferiority in the local context.
