Adolescence is a vulnerable period in one’s life- a time when many important social, cultural, economic and biological events take place which set the stage for adulthood. To empower and help these adolescents through this period, Sashakt Foundation has Girl Child Adolescent Empowerment Programme. This programme aims to improve the adolescent girls’ understanding of social skills, access to health information and services, enhance opportunities for continuation of education and increase the possibilities for participation and leadership opportunities in their communities. It also focuses on enhancing and strengthening knowledge of girls on the essential domain areas such as, Education, Life Skills, Sexual Health, Menstrual Health and Hygiene, Leadership, Nutrition, Gender and Livelihood. Football is used as a means of targeting the needy adolescents that brings together many people in one team, united to play together for one ball. For this, Sashakt Foundation conducts 2 programmes: Sports for Development and Sport for Excellence promotes social integration, encourages an active lifestyle and serves as an educational tool.

Sports for Development focuses on building skills of the girls through activity based sessions and Sports for Excellence focuses on training the girls in football with highly qualified coaches in order to provide them with future opportunities in the field of sports.

Sashakt has reached to more than 1,000 adolescent girls and boys in Delhi-NCR specifically located in Trilokpuri, Jahangirpuri, Hasanpur, Mandavali, and Sector-37 Noida and Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand.
