From where I stand: “Girls need to believe in themselves”

Wilma Riziki Kazunguis, 23, is a member of Moving the Goalposts, a community-based organization in Kilifi, a coastal town of Kenya. As part of a UN Women programme funded by the Government of Japan on enhancing women’s active participation in prevention of violent extremism in Kenya, the organization ran a project that provided livelihood skills training and helped build financial independence of young women engaged in its sport programme to build their resilience in Kilifi, Mombasa, Kwale and Tana River County where youth, including young women, are vulnerable to the spread of violent extremism.

Using football as a tool for empowering girls and young women, Moving the Goalposts is helping girls and women stand on their own feet and make their mark, both on and off the field.
