My two greatest soccer moments have been winning the World Cup in 1999 and being part of two Coaches Across Continents (CAC) programs in Tanzania. Both events impacted the lives of women through sport. I am committed to female empowerment and to help launch the new CAC ASK for Choice curriculum I’m asking you to commit to female empowerment too by donating to get your name in the draw for this incredible competition.’

    For Coaches Across Continents, the involvement of women in our programs and the promotion of gender equality in each community we visit is non-negotiable. It is only 4 months until the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada and this Sunday is International Women’s Day making this the perfect time to support global female empowerment.
