La League

Women Win partners with Plan Netherlands and the Johan Cruyff Foundation to implement 
La League, a football-based initiative in Brazil and Nicaragua
 that aims to reduce early and forced marriages and teenage pregnancies. La League strives to achieve these goals through three pathways: the social empowerment of girls through football, involvement of fathers and other male role models in order to transform gender norms, and the economic empowerment of 
girls through the creation of job opportunities in football. 

Women Win strengthens La League by building the capacity young female coaches to implement sport-based strategies for girls’ rights. Women Win has also trained local Plan staff on our Leadership and Economic Empowerment Pathways (LEEP) Strategy and co-created pathways for girls in La League to achieve economic empowerment.
