Project supported by TIBU Maroc
In the framework of its activities on social innovation through sport, TIBU Morocco places great importance to the role women play in its activities and programmes focused on education, social inclusion and professional integration through sport.
Women and little girls have been specially affected by the health crisis that has hit hard throughout the world: an increased number of abuses, job losses, increased household mental load following confinement, lower self-esteem, nearly no physical activity.
This situation has led the TIBU Morocco team to initiate a programme centred on teenage girls’ emancipation via football in rural areas, especially in Ouled-Saleh in the Casablanca-Settat province.
- Giving young girls from rural areas access to an educational programme through sport and helping them adopt a healthy lifestyle for a healthy passage from infancy into adolescence
- Fighting the lower self-esteem the young girls are suffering from and debunking the stereotypes around sport and gender
- Empowering girls, restoring their confidence in their own capacities and encouraging them to take more initiatives
- Creating positive experiences around football with young girls so as to help them reach their full potential
- Assisting the beneficiaries achieve good school results as a way of reducing the number of school drop-outs
