Sport dans la Ville, France's leading association for integration through sport, has won the Impact 2024 call for projects with its "Tomorrow with them" project. The ambition? To highlight the potential of young girls through sport and encourage them to become the leaders of tomorrow's world. During the April school holidays, the Association started to raise awareness among young girls with 2 events: in Lyon and in Paris
Promote the practice of sports by young girls
On April 14, the Sport dans la ville teams organized an event on the Association's Lyon Campus. The aim of this event was to promote and encourage the practice of sports by young girls in mixed gender. To allow the discovery and the pleasure of practicing, a diversity of sports was proposed. Moreover, the presence of our partner clubs and high level sportswomen like the players of ASVEL, girls and boys discovered basketball, tennis and handball.
This day helped to consolidate gender equality in sports and to raise awareness among boys about the integration of girls into the sports game.
"It's better to play mixed because there are girls who are stronger than boys in some sports. It was cool to play with girls," said Naim, 10.
" When there are boys, there is a challenge, it motivates. This day was great ", says Kenza, 12 years old.
Bringing out the female leaders of tomorrow
On Monday 19 May, the "Demain avec Elles" project was launched in the Ile-de-France region with a focus on young girls' leadership.
Indeed, ten young girls from all our sports centers in Ile-de-France met to participate in this launch day based on handball.
During the morning, the girls were able to discuss topics such as self-confidence, leadership, women's sports and were able to freely explain their opinions.
In order to concretize their reflections,they will produce a podcast related to the themes they have identified.
