Futebol Da Forca

In Mozambique, 48% of women between the ages of 20 and 24 reported that they got married before the age of 18. Although a stark statistic, young women and girls are being equipped with knowledge of their rights to enable change to happen.  

Futebol da Forca empowers leaders to create safe meeting spaces for girls where they can develop self-esteem and have access to adequate tools to improve their futures. The organisation runs a girls-only football league where they provide participants with information on their rights and educate them on sexual and reproductive health.
