Project Name: Women/Youth & Sports Program
There has been significant international investment to support Afghan women, including efforts to strengthen women’s rights. Since 2001 the gains in women’s rights have been lauded as one of the most tangible benefits from the international community´s engagement with Afghanistan. Afghan women, with assistance from the international community, have fought for and achieved a number of rights. “Youth are most valuable asset, for today’s youth will be tomorrow’s leaders and human resource”. FRD has been actively working in the area of women/youth and sports since last 5 years. Sport plays a primarily positive role in youth development, including improved academic achievement, higher self-esteem, fewer behavioral problems, and better psychosocial. Many studies focus on the effects of sport on the five “C’s”—competence, confidence, connections, character, and caring—which are considered critical components of positive youth development. At FRD, we use sports, for peace, development and building trust between police and people.
