And we are working to make sure that happens.
When girls and women play sports, their social, physical, economic, and emotional well-being improve. And when that happens, the communities they live in improve. But many times, girls and women do not have the support nor the space to play. The reasons for this are vast and diverse in each country, but societal norms, financial constraints, limited resources, and a lack of role models and media coverage are some of the factors that limit the opportunities for many girls and women around the world.
But we can change this.
And, at The Through Her Eyes Project, this is our goal. By telling the stories of girls and women who are playing and want to play sports, by getting more girls and women on the courts and fields, by teaching them how to tell their stories, and by supporting them with cross cultural social and financial/equipment assistance, we are working to empower, train, and assist.
We started this project in one country, and now we are taking it around the world.
WE ARE THE STORIES, IMAGES, AND VOICES OF GIRLS AND WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD.
