Football empowerment for girls

Christmas is a time for joy, inclusivity and coming together, and that was demonstrated well in Hong Kong over the festive period as the Asian Football Confederation announced details of a programme dedicated to empowering women through football in the region.

Girls’ and Womens’ football is gaining increasing traction and momentum across the globe, and the aims of the project in HK are to encourage and increase participation levels, whilst highlighting physical health benefits and other career pathways for women to make a living through sport.

It’s delivered through a number of stakeholders in Hong Kong, so expect more events coming up, including a seminar on International Women’s Day on March 8. You can read more about the project here.
