At Coconut Water Foundation we always try to promote Human Rights through fun, creative activities that contribute to develop children’s abilities.
Among our activities there are formal ones, like Maths or Khmer lessons, and fun ones like football. Regarding football, we focus on girls because we want to promote gender equity and to encourage young girls to practice sports. We want them to understand that they can be as strong and talented as any boy.
We also want parents to become aware of the importance of sport: sport is very important for health, self-confidence and it helps keeping students away from dangerous behaviours in their free time (like using drugs). Our female team improves really fast! And every time more parents understand our message and allow their daughters to join the team.
