In a significant step towards nurturing safe and inclusive sports environments for young women, MEMPROW (Mentoring and Empowerment Program for Young Women) has recently developed a pioneering Safeguarding in Sports document. This initiative made possible through the support of the African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF), aims to champion secure sports engagement and eliminate violence against girls and young women
MEMPROW’s commitment to empowering Girls and Young Women through sports has been evident in its extensive sports galas within several schools, creating opportunities for girls to participate in sports while ensuring their safety and well-being. Over the years, MEMPROW has been able to extend its reach and impact, making substantial strides in advocating for girl-child engagement and using sports as a vehicle to end violence.
The Safeguarding in Sports document is a comprehensive guide that equips sports leaders, including teachers, coaches, and club owners, with the tools to establish and maintain secure sports spaces. The document is not only about our dedication to the cause but also a practical resource that will empower individuals to create environments where girls can grow both athletically and personally.
Key features of the Safeguarding in Sports document include Concerns about Harm, Reporting safeguarding concerns, safeguarding tips, Inclusion, Case Management, and creating a strong Safeguarding vulture. By addressing these crucial aspects, MEMPROW aims to contribute to the overall development of girls and young women, encouraging a sense of empowerment beyond the sports arena.
The importance of safe sports engagement for girls cannot be overstated. It not only provides a platform for physical well-being but also instills values of teamwork, discipline, and self-confidence. By introducing this document, MEMPROW visualizes a future where every girl can participate in sports without fear, and where their talents are nurtured in an environment that respects and protects their rights.
