Dalys commented on EmPower Play Toolkit

Great idea! I believe sports can help young girls to get in touch with themselves and build confidence. Helps them feel powerful and accomplished, develop strategic thinking, team work and a sense of belonging. I see you are mixing sports with psychological support and I think it's a great combination to ensure the intervention works. Women from communities with widespread violence, encounter violence in unimaginable ways: from something they can see to something they can experience and this affects the way children and young girls grow up and the way they see the world. Congrats to you and good luck!

Thank you for your comment, the concept of a toolkit is very interesting and we certainly take on a community approach to solve poverty issues in the community. We are currently developing manuals to document the methodology used in the training room. I'd love to hear more about what you have in mind, we could discuss any time you'd like.

Thank you for the tips! I will provide a few examples to explain the background of the participants and their accomplishments after the training.
