BENEFITING: I WANT TO PLAY INC

Ben Feldman

THE STORY:

This is a program that uses sports and life skills education to mainly empower teenage girls who are facing hostile environments. Lack of access to education and opportunity, and low social status in communities are linked to violence and hostility against these teenage girls, which could be in a form of physical, sexual or mental suffering. Many of these victims do not seek help or report violence when it occurs with the fear of getting hurt or killed. Girls who come from poor and economic disadvantaged communities and homes are also vulnerable to early pregnancies due to lack of extra activities around the community to channel their time.

These girls want change that will advocate to their freedom. They want an opportunity to be seen as human beings with equal status. They want an opportunity to play outside like the boys and engage in sports. They want the opportunity that “Go Girls” program provides.

The “Go Girls” program carries an energizing mix of sports such as; tennis, soccer, aerobics and dance. Our Academy encourages and promotes girls to get involved in any sports so they can learn teamwork, achievement, self-respect and personal investment which they can use to make choices that lead to a happier, healthier life. “Go Girls” curriculum includes hands-on workshops on nutrition, good hygiene, HIV Prevention, social skills and leadership.
