Women Win is excited to be partnering with super model Adwoa Aboah, Gurls Talk and Nike to launch the Made to Play Fund, aimed to getting and keeping girls and young women in sport. The fund will support young women (16-25 years-old) to lead projects using the power of sport and play to empower younger girls (7-14 years-old).
If you are a young woman or if you know a young woman who has a great idea about getting young girls active, then the fund can help finance it!
Women Win, Gurls Talk and Nike will give funding, leadership training and Nike products to support the winners in getting the idea off the ground.
The fund is open for applications from young woman who are connected to a non-profit organisation (volunteer, work, coach or mentor) and can prove an opportunity for professional development as the fund offers:
– A grant (£5000-£7000 or $/€ equivalent for the non-profit organisation to fund the idea)
– Nike products
– A place at the Women Win Leadership in Sport programme
If you know a young woman or organisation that could benefit from this support, share the message! Applications are open until January 31, 2019.
