Creating an even playing field
for girls and boys
Our work with DAZN creates opportunities for young people to learn about gender equality through sport.
Meet Yara, who dreams of becoming a Physical Education teacher.
“Thank you for giving us the opportunity of knowing that we are powerful and the importance of being powerful in our lives.”
CHAMPIONS OF CHANGE IN BRAZIL
In Brazil, DAZN supported young people to become Champions of Change by developing skills through football. Young people learned about gender equality, gender-based violence, harmful stereotypes and how to campaign for change. They applied their learnings to how they play sport – with key life lessons in every match.
Young people shared their knowledge with their communities, conducted awareness-raising projects and engaged key decision makers. They participated in community football tournaments to showcase their skills and raise awareness of and gain support for the project.
A once-in-a-lifetime experience
In 2019, we took a group of top fundraisers from Stats Perform and DAZN on an unforgettable project visit to Brazil.
