What is the project
Sport and empowerment: sport gives you the opportunity to experience physical strength, to get to know yourself and to push boundaries, to be challenged to push your limits. Important aspects when it comes to self-development and self-awareness. Making choices that are good for you! Sport, delivering on a very different level from 'learning from a book' is a valuable addition to empowering girls and women towards adulthood.
As you become clearer about who you really are, you'll be better able to decide what is best for you.
In the CWCN, where former street girls from Kathmandu have a place to live and learn, this belief is shared and the Volleyball4life program is an important part of the counseling. The program is a result of the collaboration between Net4kids, the Dutch Volleybal Association (Nevobo), CWCN and the Nepalese top volleyball player Kopila Uprety, who is responsible for the implementation. The personal story of Kopila in combination with volleyball training gives the girls in the center inspiration and helps them to develop life skills.
Gender equality is a human fight. Not a female fight.
Especially for girls and young women, a sport like volleyball can contribute to their improvement in position as a woman in general. By offering sports activities, you give them the opportunity to develop and increase their self-confidence. Girls and women who excel in sports can act as role models for other girls and women. This can ultimately lead to a change in the self-image of women. In the CWCN programs, the approach to boys in the communities also plays an important role in the process of gender equality.
Why did Net4kids choose this project partner?
The success of CWCN's approach in recent years has to do with the way in which this organization has grown professionally. Founder Tirtha has played a major role in this and has set up a team of hardworking, passionate and intelligent people. He is described by his staff as "an excellent communicator, has strong management skills, is hardworking and committed to any projects he undertakes." His long-term vision fits in with the way Net4kids looks at how you can structurally offer children an independent and independent future.
How do I make a difference in this project with my company?
The starting point of CSR policy, choose a suitable project that stays close to your DNA and / or the working area of your organization. Doing something right is only credible if it stays close to your core business and core values.
