About The Project
Inspire is harnessing the power of the world’s most popular game, football, to tackle one of the biggest issues we face today — gender-based violence.
Recognizing the need to create safe spaces for women and curb gender-based violence at an early age, the initiative aims to educate young boys through the medium of football by challenging prevailing gender biases and attitudes.
To this end, Inspire conceived “Pledge United”, an 8-week programme for young boys that integrates football and gameplay with lessons about advocating for women’s rights with the aim of giving gender-based violence the red card.
For too long, men’s attitudes and behavior have remained unchallenged, and now, through Pledge United, it is possible to mobilize change. Through this football-based initiative, young men are becoming agents of positive change as they use their platform to share a message of equality and peace.
