The Netball Team has become instrumental in empowering our women to feel they can accomplish anything regardless of their sex. The Netball team has trainings three days a week, and at least once every two weeks, they have a match. They also play in the District Tournament, which happens on a quarterly basis. The trainers build in time for discussions on women's rights and issues concerning reproductive and sexual health.
With the Drop Child Care program, women are able to continue their education and training without having to worry about the safety and care of their child. All of these opportunities have equipped women with the tools to succeed.
