Women Win is the global leader in girls’ empowerment through sport. We leverage the power of play to help girls build leadership and become better equipped to exercise their rights. Sport is only our tool. Our end game is helping girls thrive as they face the most pressing issues of adolescence, including accessing sexual and reproductive health and rights, addressing gender-based violence and achieving economic empowerment.
Equip adolescent girls to exercise their rights through sport.
Since 2007, we have impacted the lives of over 1.24 million adolescent girls in over 100 countries. This has been made possible by collaborations with a wide variety of grassroots women’s organisations, corporates, development organisations, sport bodies and government agencies.
Our work is strategically positioned at the intersection of development, sport and women’s rights. We are positive, dynamic, playful, lean and forward looking.
One Win Leads to Another; by 2018, 2 million adolescent girls and young women realise their leadership potential through sport.
Through intra and cross-sector partnerships, we tackle global gender inequity by investing in localised, grassroots solutions. We deliver on our mission by employing a strategy with three unique dimensions:
Strengthen: We make the field of practice stronger. By financially investing in a small portfolio of organisations we build their capacity and learn from their work. With them, we build open-source tools such as guidelines and curricula to bring effective ideas and strategies to the global community. We achieve scale by sharing these tools and serving as technical service providers for larger organisations who have an interest in the growth of girls’ sport and/or empowerment.
Impact: We prove that sport can build girls’ leadership and improve effectiveness of programs through gathering, analysing and sharing robust data with our partners. Instead of the old fashioned, expensive and autonomous monitoring and evaluation approach, we use a cloud-based system called Salesforce to encourage a collective impact strategy; whereby we measure social change across many girls, partners, countries and interventions. We are putting data at the forefront of the case for girls’ sport.
Catalyse: We are building a movement of people that believe in sport as a lever for achieving more equitable societies. As thought leaders in the arenas of gender, development and sport, we are catalysing a conversation to generate ideas, energy, resources and attention. We do this by amplifying the voices of girls as advocates for their right to play and grow.
Partnerships and strategic alliances are essential to achieving the Women Win mission. The complexity and scale of gender inequity means that no one can effectively tackle it alone. Our collaborations allow us to increase impact and efficiency and, at their best, are rooted in the virtuous circle of exchange. In our partnerships that span continents and sectors, we put an uncompromising emphasis on three principles:
• Mutual Benefit
• designing sport programmes
• economic empowerment
• gender-based violence (GBV)
• gbv in conflict (post) regions
• sexual+reproductive health+rights (SRHR)
• goal programme
