WE HELP AND SUPPORT GIRLS AND WOMEN TO GET IN THE GAME. 

WE CAPTURE & SHARE THE STORIES OF GIRLS AND WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD WHO PLAY AND WHO WANT TO PLAY SPORTS.

WE TRAIN THEM TO TELL THEIR OWN STORIES.

WE SUPPORT AND FUND THEIR PLAY.

OUR MISSION AND APPROACH HAS THREE COMPONENTS

1. CAPTURE AND SHARE

We capture, create, and produce exhibits and media projects that profile girls and women in developing countries and under supported communities of the United States, who play sports and who want to play sports.

We do this to:

  • highlight the benefits they gain from playing

  • show how they are empowered through sports to be leaders and change agents in their communities

  • demonstrate how they are limited if not given the opportunity to play

  • create a visual record of positive images that are many times missing in media coverage 

And then we share these stories with the world. 


2. TEACH & TRAIN

We pass on the skills of how to tell one’s own story, and the power that comes from doing so. Through a visual storytelling curriculum and teaching sessions in each country we visit, we pass on the tools to tell stories.

We share the basics of how to tell their own stories and the stories of the people in their lives, with the girls and women we work with and their community partners. 

Through lessons in writing, reporting, photography, and video, the girls and women gain skills that empower them to continue spreading the news, achievements, struggles, and triumphs that are many times ignored by traditional media, even after The Through Her Eyes Project leaves.

3. Support

We support and fund girls who lack the resources to play sports in the developing world and underserved/supported areas of the U.S. through our unique initiative - Sister Teams.

This program pairs teams and communities in the developing world and under resourced areas of the U.S., with organizations, teams, and individuals in the U.S. Following the match, each Sister Team commits to a monthly series of one-on-one conversations, pen-pal relationships, and digital exchanges using social media, curated to promote exchange and conversation.

Additionally, our U.S. based teams commit to raise funds and/or collect equipment donations for their sister teams, and we facilitate the donation delivery to each team. Through our Sister Teams program girls share stories of their lives building cross-cultural relationships, and support one another in pursuing their dreams to play on and off the fields and courts.
