Girls United IS FOR A WORLD WHERE GIRLS HAVE EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES IN SPORT, IN EDUCATION, IN JOBS, IN LIFE.
Inequality in sport affects women and girls all around the world. Due to negative stereotypes and limiting gender roles, girls and women do not have access to the same opportunities, resulting in gender gap that goes beyond the pitch and into society.
Our vision is for girls around the world to have equal access to sport and to provide them with skills and abilities that will broaden their opportunities to participate in education and in the economy. We are bridging the gap between sport and education.
Our mission is to establish football academies in low-income areas and provide the local community with the support and structure to adopt the academies. We aim to promote gender equality, improve physical health and encourage sustainable economic changes through football coaching that focuses on the development of well-rounded individuals.
