EMpower is organizing an international workshop/exchange on girls, sports, and empowerment in Rio de Janeiro in September. The workshop will bring together 10-12 organizations that EMpower is currently supporting who are using sports as a tool for education/peace/social change in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. It will be an intensive, participatory exchange aimed at strengthening organizations’ capacities to confront gender dynamics in their daily work with young people and to engage girls more effectively in their programs. Congratulations to our very own Wewe Sokoyi and Karl Voysey for being nominated!
Hoops 4 Hope
Since 1995, Hoops 4 Hope (H4H), a global not-for-profit organization, has been committed to supporting youth development and HIV/AIDS education throughout southern Africa by providing more than 10,000 school-age children with our Basketball / Skills 4 Life program.
“Ubuntu” expresses an ancient South African concept of unity, that every human is part of a greater whole, that I am who I am through you, and you are who you are through me. It captures in one word the combined love of all humanity.
We can’t change lives by ourselves. Every day, we have to stretch the buck further than one day before. We invite you to express ubuntu with us and the hundreds of lives we touch by getting involved with Hoops 4 Hope.
