Project supported by El Ghaith Association
In Algeria sport is hardly practised and accessible to women. This is due to both the critical views of the society and insecurity. The girls’ practice of sports at school is hindered by a lack of female resources capable of teaching the sporting syllabi in the elementary and grammar schools. The fact that most of the teachers are men further dampens the girls’ enthusiasm for the practice of sport. The girls are not provided with the same opportunities for development through sport the way the boys of the same age are. For UNDP in Algeria, the gender equality record still shows many disparities with a gender inequality index of 0.425 in 2013 causing the country to rank 81th in 152 countries.
El Ghaith ASLCPE would like to provide the girls and young women with a greater access to sporting activities by changing the community’s views on women’s practice of sports as well as to build a gender-sensitive community in favour of women.
