Games 4 Good Foundation
July 7th 2016. CAC is delighted to announce that we will be partnering with the Games 4 Good Foundation for the 2nd year in a row. This time we will be delivering our sport for social impact program with local partner training4changeS in South Africa as part of the grant. We will be introducing our new ‘ASK for Choice’ female empowerment curriculum to the participants in Stellenbosch from July 18th to July 29th.
The CAC and training4changeS partnership ensures that young women and girls have safe spaces from which to share their knowledge and express their own visions for their lives and communities. It creates an opportunity for girls to question harmful social, cultural and religious practices. The majority of women and girls are not even aware of what their rights are. This partnership will raise awareness and empower women and their communities to implement, respect and protect these rights.
In addition to ASK for Choice this partnership will have a significant focus on technology. training4changeS will have participants on CAC’s Online Education Program over the next 12 months. This will allow some of their key staff to remotely learn how to adapt and create their own sport for social impact games under the guidance of CAC’s experienced team. In addition, they will utilize CAC’s Virtual Learning Community which offers monthly Webinar’s on key topics in sport for social impact and organizational development. These elements of the project will be imperative to ensure it creates sustainable change in Stellenbosch. It will truly be ‘Education for a Changing World’.
We are incredibly excited about the potential of this partnership and thank the Games 4 Good Foundation for their invaluable support.
