Women Win is the global leader in girls’ empowerment through sport. We leverage the power of play to help girls build leadership skills and become better equipped to exercise their rights. Sport is only our tool. Our endgame is helping girls thrive as they face the most pressing issues of adolescence, including accessing sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), addressing gender based violence (GBV) and achieving economic empowerment (EE). 

Since 2007, we have impacted the lives of 2,200,400 adolescent girls in over 100 countries. This is possible thanks to collaborations with a wide variety of grassroots women’s organisations, corporates, development organisations, sport bodies and government agencies. Women Win currently supports initiatives in Asia, Africa, Middle East, North and South America.

Highlights

Since 2007, we have:

  • Impacted the lives of over 2.2 million adolescent girls in over 100 countries, on five continents
  • Supported a diverse portfolio of over 50 programme partners 
  • Established key strategic partnerships and alliances across sectors with actors who have a shared interest in girls’ rights and/or sport
  • Developed a series of open-source International Guidelines for addressing girls’ rights through sport, to cross-pollinate the experience of practitioners around the world
  • Partnered with Standard Chartered in the dissemination of the award-winning Goal Programme; an innovative sport and life skills curriculum designed for girls aged 12-18 from underserved communities
  • Driven a collective impact strategy to measure the influence of sport on the lives of girls with a global set of partners who have a shared interest in the topic, using Salesforce as a common platform for data collection and analysis
  • Released an extensive evaluation report on our three-year programme ‘Building Young Women’s Leadership Through Sport’ (BYWLTS). The report provides results and recommendations from the programme. Overall, we have seen that adolescent girls and young women enhanced their knowledge, attitudes and behaviours related to SRHR, GBV, and EE.
