ANF’S goal is to empower African girls/women through health, education, sports and mentorship.
ANF’s impact will continue to grow: we need your support to keep touching girls/women lives positively with our 4 Programs.
1. Keep HER Moving
Women and girls to get more educated about the benefits of sports (basketball & martial arts ). Health & leadership seminars will be done to encourage more sports participation earlier in life, this close to home and in more secure spaces (neighborhoods & schools). The objective being to get our girls healthier and more confident early.
2. Women Empowerment camps (WEC)
The WEC works to help in the early growth of female leaders thru role modeling during team sport participation. WEC will also engage other youth across Africa & the rest of the world through partnerships with other organizations that have similar values of: mutual respect, cross-cultural understanding & gender equality.
3. Educate to Empower (EtE)
EtE aim is to encourage girls at a very young age to join existing programs and start identifying and developing their leadership traits early (Academic support in STEM/English & vital lifeskills)
4. Raising the Bar
This work will be geared towards Improving the environment in our public schools, it will contribute in making select schools in need more adapted to long hours for students and teachers (8AM-6PM) with access to water, sanitized girls bathrooms, shaded spaces to rest and areas for more girls to keep and stay active (basketball courts and martial arts in schools & neighborhoods).
