In our current climate of increased concern for girls’ health, childhood obesity and the economic, physical and mental health cost of inactivity, the project aims to create a context for adolescent girls to live healthier and productive lives. Beyond the clear physical and health benefits of sports, participation in sports programs provides girls with opportunities to transform the way they think about themselves, develops leadership skills and other essential social competencies to lead productive lifestyles.
