IT’S TIME: THEIR VOICES MUST BE HEARD
In 2020, Covid-19 threatens to erase the momentum and unprecedented attention women’s sport has gained around the world. In response, the ONSIDE Fund, administered by Women Win, has been created as a partnership between women’s funds and sport for development organisations to support feminist organising and hyper local solutions that place girls and women at the centre of change.Learn more about the fund

Protecting Adolescent Girls
Covid-19 will have economic and social impacts on communities around the world that we are only beginning to understand. Evidence shows that targeted responses that consider the unique needs of adolescent girls don’t often exist and these needs get lost between efforts aimed at children or adult women. Adolescent girls will be impacted by the Covid-19 situation in a myriad of ways, including adverse effects on their education, personal safety, bodily autonomy, health, peer support, social connections and economic prospects.Read Women Win's Full Statement

The following are a collection of our guidelines and resoures to support other practitioners through sharing good practices.
Designing Sport Programmes
