Over the last decade, sport has increasingly been used as a tool for empowering youth in developing countries, including in humanitarian settings. Women Win has noticed a significant gap in the tools, frameworks and approaches available at the intersection of sport programming, girls’ rights and humanitarian contexts. To close this gap, Women Win has supported the creation of Girls in Motion, a collaborative exploration of how local communities in humanitarian settings can foster gender-transformative environments, with adolescent girls in the lead, through sport
Specifically, our aim is to:
- Facilitate community and girl-led design and implementation of sport programmes for adolescent girls through the exploration of important questions and issues at the intersection of sport and gender in humanitarian settings
- Support a movement for gender transformative communities and girls’ rights through sport in humanitarian and fragile settings
The Girls in Motion playbook seeks to support organisations and practitioners to design, develop and deliver adolescent girl-centred sport programmes in humanitarian settings everywhere.
