Girls at youth club

We are thrilled to let you know that for the first time in many years we have had more females than males attending a Junior Youth Club sports session!

Following many fact-sharing sessions with the community members (particularly parents), as well as the employment of a female Project Assistant and a focus on Gender Equality in NYM’s youth initiatives, the efforts of John Chilinde, Rabecca Vinkhumbo and all staff at NYM have paid off resulting in a boost in female attendance at Youth Club.

The girls played a vibrant game of netball while the boys were busy on the football pitch. We very much hope that this is a sign of times to come!
