EQUITY OF EDUCATION
We Donate All Unused Programmes
Teenage girls that are socially disadvantaged in Ireland have the lowest rate of participation in sport and physical activity compared to their peers*.
We know that gender has a strong impact on the likelihood of participation in sport and exercise. Teenage girls are dropping out of physical activity and sport at twice the rate of boys their age*. However, we are also aware that social disadvantage has a dramatic impact on the chances that a person is physically active. Teenage girls that are socially disadvantaged in Ireland have the lowest rate of participation in sport and physical activity compared to their peers. These girls experience a narrower range of different sporting opportunities and face numerous barriers to sport.
At Move2B we love to see all girls, regardless of ability, location or family background, get the chance to be physically active and to find a sport or activity that they enjoy.
You can support this initiative through our ‘pay it forward’ purchase option. For every ‘pay it forward’ programme that is purchased – we will match it to ensure as many girls as possible have access to the Move2B programme.
