Sport And Leaderships Training (SALT) Academy

SALT (Sport And Leaderships Training) Academy trains youth through a community based football program, incorporating life skills lessons and vocational training. Our Mighty Girls Program gives exceptional young female players from across the region an opportunity to undertake high level education and training. SALT also provides the dormitory as a safety net for girls at risk of human trafficking and empowers each of the Mighty Girls to act as a role model within her own community. All of the girls (despite their young age) are coaching football teams and help as referees and teachers for life skill lessons. As part of our Mighty Girls Development Program, the “Summer School” brings girls from different communities together into extensive activities for the three month long summer break. We manage  to encourage them to pursue further education or vocational training and also to reach out to girls that are at high risk of human trafficking.
