October 11, 2012 marks the first International Day of the Girl. Since launching Can Soccer Save the World? almost a year ago, some of the most inspiring projects I’ve come across have been those using soccer as a way to support girls’ empowerment.
One such project is Girls & Football SA, whose mission is to involve the local and global community by encouraging sport as a developmental tool for girls and by raising awareness about important issues that influence the lives of girls in South Africa.
Today in honor of the first International Day of the Girl, Girls & Football SA is launching their very own online shop. No matter where you are in the world, you can support girls and young women in South Africa by scoring a Reaching Stars t-shirt or hoodie. All proceeds from your purchases contribute directly to the work of Girls & Football SA. Please note prices are listed in South African rand and, until November 11th, select items are on sale, so make your way over to our store now by clicking below.
