Afghanistan Needs Women Leaders

An article by Nicolas Messner

“Judo is more than a sport. It is a philosophy that helps us to develop our mind and body to overcome difficulties in order to build a better society, as it was stated by Kano Jigoro Shihan, the founder of judo. The judo values have proven on many occasions that they can help communities to develop better living conditions through our moral code: courtesy, courage, friendship, honesty, honour, modesty, respect and self-control. The Judo for Afghan Women and Girls for the GOAL Judo initiative totally embraces those values and the judo motto ‘mutual welfare and benefit” Nicolas Messner

Friba Rezayee is a smily and dynamic young woman, living in Canada and graduated in Political Science from the University of British Columbia, but that was not always the case. The founder and lead programme coordinator of ‘Women Leaders of Tomorrow’ and its leadership in sports project ‘GOAL’ (Girls of Afghanistan Lead) was born and raised in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Today is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

Today is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. The GOAL initiative is a grass root women empowerment program. It helps women and girls to end gender based violence. The only way to assure that is to empower Afghan women and girls. You have the power to do that. By donating today at you will make sure that these girls will keep coming to their daily training, equally participating as men, have presence in the society as human beings, and eliminate culture of violence!
