Academy for Girls' Leadership and Sport Development
The vision of the Academy is to help girls develop the self-confidence and skils they need to become active agents for positive development and transformation in their communities.
The Academy is specifically devoted to the empowerment of girls through leadership development programmes. It takes the form of weekly, weekend and holiday training camps where girls (ages 12-19) can develop a positive vision for themselves, their communities and for Africa.
Two different programme streams are offered to accommodate the interests of girls. They can combine their leadership education with either:
• Improving their performance in a competitive sport, or
• Acquiring the knowledge, skills and attitude to pursue a physically active lifestyle.
The Academy uses a mentoring system where women students from the University work with the girls to guide them as they practice their emerging leadership skills in community engagement projects.
