Global Goal 10 - Reduce inequality
Team Team10 will be playing for Goal 10: Reduced Inequality.
All the players on this team have faced inequality in a different form. Some just being female and others simply because they didn’t fit in. Goal number 10 is very close and personal to the players and each one of the players wants to share their experience, helping others, who might be going through the same.
How will the team take action for their Goal?
We will host workshops in one of the asylum centers in northern Denmark, where our focus would be to talk about opportunities and encourage women, who faced inequality in any form. We are also planning to do workshop and leadership exercises to build confidence and stand for their right if they face any kind of inequality in the future.
Teamwork will also be a priority. Stand with each other and having each others back will be one of our focuses.
The women in center do not allow anyone to take their photos due to security or culture.
“We made women's football activities in Sjælsmark Asylum center. The asylum center had men's team but they were missing women's football and activities for women.
Girl Power Organisation offered them volunteer coaches and kits and some workshops that could encourage women to come and join. Some women didnt’ want to play football then we used different way of tackling the challenge and we made it more like a fun football with fun activities, like dancing, while working with the ball, added music and some other fun activities to encourage women to join.”
