  • Description

Building Young Women's Leadership through Sport (BYWLTS) was a three-year programme with the objective of increasing the leadership of adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in formal and informal decision making processes. Women Win worked closely with eight partner organisations in seven countries to deliver quality sport and life skills programmes to over 65,000 AGYW. In addition, AGYW were provided with opportunities to practise leadership through a mentorship programme and by learning how to create their stories through Digital Storytelling.

A Collective Impact framework was developed and extensive monitoring and evaluation conducted throughout to understand the impact that the BYWLTS programme had on partner organisations, AGYW and their communities. In addition, external evaluation consultants conducted additional quantitative analysis to validate results and test statistical significance.
