We affirm that through sports we shall strengthen the ability of girls to challenge the core of gender-based violence (GBV) i.e. inequity, patriarchy, and rigid gender roles. We note that the application of sport in combating gender-based violence is practical as it engages the girls holistic on positive learning/discipline whilst giving those physical skills and strength to protect themselves through practical rights affirming methodologies.
