The SOL Foundation

SOL’s contribution

Between the years 2016 and 2018, The SOL Foundation helps to educate 5’000 girls on reproductive health and HIV/AIDS, with educational sessions delivered through football matches and training.

More than 2’000 league matches are played every year, and the contribution also covers the costs of training 45 coaches, 45 referees and 45 first-aiders to ensure sessions can be delivered. It also enables the employment of a full-time Child Protection officer, to promote child safety and to intervene, where appropriate, in cases where girls are at serious risk of dropping out of school due to pregnancy or early marriage. 90 girls also receive training on entrepreneurial skills to increase their financial independence.
