'Wasichana Tunaweza'- Girls We Can project wins UN MDG AWARD 2010

TYSA WINS UN MILLENIUM DEVELOPMENT GOALS AWARD IN KENYA
TYSA emerged top on Inaugural Millennium Development Goal No. 3: Promoting gender equality and empowering women. The MDGs Trust Fund Kenya was the main organizer of this event which was held on 10th September 2010 at the National Museum of Kenya. Other partners include; UNDP Kenya country office, UN Millennium Campaign, Synovate and Microsoft among others
The award seeks to recognize and celebrate Kenyan institutions that are making impactful differences in the society with regards to MDGs. The spotlight was on organizations that have demonstrated outstanding and innovating efforts towards the delivery o the eight MDG goals through their core porgrammes. The award also aims to recognize significant efforts made by various institutions to advance social change through their innovations and in their different capacities to achieve the MDGs.
TYSA’s ‘Wasichana Tunaweza ‘- Girls We Can Project was outstanding in the delivery the MDG; promoting gender equality and empowering women. This project seeks to eliminate gender disparity through increased accesses to educational and retention and capacity building opportunities for girls. The ‘wasichana Tunaweza’ project is well summarized by the following comments Marc from Globalgiving USA when he visited the project. It struck me that this is about much more than soccer, or sports. This is about building up strong willed women who can lead the nation. It's about reaching for that future together, as a team. It's kind of hard for me to explain what I am seeing, because there isn't anything like it in the USA that is similar. At least not so explicitly. This is not a mere sport. Belonging to this team is about developing character and building your future. We discipline the body so that we can discipline the mind, through school. And education gives you opportunities, a future."
