Goleadoras: Together we change the game
In Goleadoras, we use soccer as an instrument to transform the lives of girls and women around the world.
The pandemic took us back 35 years in the search for gender equality. In 2021, the crisis generated by COVID 19 will push 47 million women and girls into extreme poverty worldwide.
Our solution proposal is to encourage soccer practice for girls and adolescents, establishing teams to develop:
- Emotional abilities and gender equality
- Self confidence
- Health and Wellness
Goleadoras has three primary programs through which it promotes the development of socio-emotional and leadership skills in girls and young women:
1. Education programs in the field: In our soccer field education programs, girls' teams train together in one 90-minute session per week. Together they develop their soccer skills while also receiving training to support each other and grow as citizens and leaders.
2. Virtual Education Program: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to suspend, temporarily, the Goleadoras on-field training sessions, and all efforts shifted towards the development of online resources. The online program includes a 60-minute session once a week. The girls receive training on soccer and physical conditioning while developing their socio-emotional skills and sharing their experiences with their peers.
3. Goleadoras All-Stars: It is a podcast with conversations with inspiring women in sport and leadership to inspire girls to learn from the experiences of successful women across the board. We want to invite you to participate as one of our supporters. Together we can change the game for thousands of girls around the world.
