Empowering girls and women through sport and physical activity


Author(s): Ravi V Gola

Abstract:
Girls and women face obstacles when it comes to empowerment, whether it is cultural, socioeconomic, political or religious. As a Peace Corps Volunteer in Moldova, I tried to help the girls and women in my community overcome some of these obstacles by promoting female participation in physical education and sports. Primary obstacles were the poor insulation and heating in the gymnasium, which prevented girls and women from participating in sports and physical education from October-April. Working with a Let Girls Learn (LGL) grant allowed us to repair the condition of the gymnasium, add additional sports teams and clubs to the school, and introduce girls to opportunities in sports through a lecture series. As a result of the interventions, more females participated in physical education classes and sports.
