This year, the Danish Embassy in South Africa was one of the sponsors of the Global Goals Girls Football Tournament. Hosted on the 13 October 2018, our shaper Rebecca worked to organize the event which brought together girls from all over the country and continent to compete in a football tournament.

It’s aim was to promote overall gender equality, poverty alleviation and the Global Goals (aka Sustainable Development Goals). Held in Alexandra, the tournament was vibrant, despite stormy weather conditions. Girls from underprivileged areas all over the country got to engage with education about the importance of the SDGs and how they can be empowered to contribute to the SDGs even at a local level. Well done Rebecca!
