By mobilizing the attractiveness of sport, the notoriety of players and the success of popular media and digital formats, the project will create educational messages and convey on a large scale values such as civic engagement, solidarity, respect for the other. The objective to contribute to making sport a lever for development in Africa in terms of access to health (SDG no. 3) and gender equality (SDG no. 5). The project actions will help to:
- Inform and sensitize a large audience of young Africans by using sport as a vehicle for promoting health and gender;
- Encourage the practice of sport by girls by fighting against stereotypes and discrimination that hinder their free participation in sport;
