Empowering Youth Through Sports and Culture at YAWE Foundation

At YAWE Foundation, we are passionate about harnessing the transformative power of sports and culture to empower the youth. Recently, on May 22, 2021, we hosted an inspiring psychosocial Saturday event that exemplifies our commitment to creating positive change in the lives of young individuals.

Belief in the Power of Girl Sports:

At YAWE, we firmly believe that involvement in sports, particularly for girls, offers a myriad of benefits. Beyond the physical, engaging in sports contributes significantly to the mental well-being of young girls. Our initiatives aim to foster opportunities for leadership, social inclusion, integration, and the challenging of gender norms.

Preserving Heritage Through Culture at YAWE Foundation

In addition to our sports initiatives, YAWE Foundation takes great pride in preserving and celebrating our cultural heritage. Our vibrant cultural group passionately engages in traditional dances and songs, serving as custodians of our rich cultural identity. These activities not only showcase the diversity of our heritage but also provide a platform for youth to connect with their roots, fostering a deep sense of belonging and pride.
