A Story of Hope: One Goal: Gender Equality

Plan's Champions of Change project confronts sexist attitudes that have excluded girls.

Plan’s Champions of Change (CoC) project has already reached hundreds of thousands of children in nine countries to help level the playing field in support of gender equality. Boys and men are examining and improving sexist attitudes and behaviors that have excluded girls and encouraged violence. At the same time, CoC is providing safe spaces, protection, and leadership opportunities for girls.

Traditionally viewed as a male teambuilding sport, CoC uses soccer as one way to educate boys about gender equality and prejudice, while building girls’ confidence through sport. Our coeducational soccer leagues encourage teamwork, inclusion, mutual respect, and, of course, play!
