Games 4 Good Foundation and Coaches Across Continents partner in Cameroon

CAC is delighted to announce that we will be partnering with the Games 4 Good Foundation to deliver our sport for social impact programme with local partner Breaking Ground in Cameroon.

We will be introducing our new, innovative ‘ASK for Choice’ female empowerment curriculum to the participants in Ngaoundéré and Dschang from 24 May to 6 June. The CAC and Breaking Ground Football 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. Civil equality laws in this region, where they exist, are frequently overruled by traditional, patriarchal ones. 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. We are incredibly excited about the potential of this partnership and thank Games 4 Good Foundation for their invaluable support.
