HCF GIRLS INITIATIVE

TOGETHER WE CAN ALL #EMBRACEEQUITY #BREAKTHEBIAS

The HCF Girls Program is part of our community outreach efforts aimed at creating a safe space and equal opportunity for girls to particpate in youth programs and sports just as their male counterparts. Giving girls equal oportunities have been integral to the success of our programs over the years. Sports bridges gender gaps. In 2018 we added 10 girls to the Peace Ambassadorial program in Nigeria. In addition, we added 3 girls to our Youth Pathways virtual mentorship Program (Leadership, Personal Development and Financial Literacy) which we rounded up in Toronto, Canada (Winter 2021) and over 40 women and young girls during our annual Christmas events. In 2022, 16 girls participated on the Bigger than Hoop Dream 3x3 Peace Ambassadors Basketball Tournament.

We have continued to ensure that Women and Girls have a direct line of communication and support as most of our program operations and decision making process are executed by our volunteer women in Nigeria and Canada. HCF is 95% women led. We are proud to have celebrated International Womens Day on March 8th, 2023.  #EMBRACEEQUITY
