About ActivateHer

Founded in January 2018, ActivateHer provides sporting opportunities to girls between the age of 3 and 14 in under-served communities around Cape Town, South Africa. Using the power of sports, ActivateHer translates what is played on the field or the court into continued learning about physical health, life skills, and English comprehension.

Mission

Our mission is to empower under-served girls through sport to
become agents of change within their communities,
and fulfill their potential as young women and global citizens.

Vision

A world where all girls have the power to play.




                                                 Let's get active!

                                                                                                                                                      ActivateHer focuses on promoting physical health, body positivity, life skills

                                                                                                                                                      and empowerment through physical activity in young girls by first and

                                                                                                                                                      foremost getting them active. Rather than mastering a sport, what is more

                                                                                                                                                      important in ActivateHer is providing opportunities for girls to learn about

                                                                                                                                                      themselves and their abilities.

                                             Female Empowerment

                                                                                                                                                       ActivateHer uses local young women from within ActivateHer girls’ communities

                                                                                                                                                       to coach sessions. As coaches, mentors and teachers these young women are

                                                                                                                                                       positive role models that ActivateHer girls can relate with. This coaching role

                                                                                                                                                       within ActivateHer seeks to create employment opportunities, work experience,

                                                                                                                                                       and skills development to local young women who are currently locked out of

                                                                                                                                                       formal employment structures or are supporting themselves through higher

                                                                                                                                                       education.
