MTG wants to make a change in the statistics around Kilifi District and has started an organization that uses football to develop essential life skills. They teach skills to girls and women to better equip them for the future touching topics of leadership, confidence, and self esteem. Not only does MTG work on helping women gain confidence and leadership but they also educate the women about reproductive health, human rights, and economic empowerment initiatives.
Through football MTG helps strengthen the voices of women in their community while setting an amazing example to the new generation of women.
