“Sports taught me to accept defeat with grace, to acknowledge my weaknesses and to pick up my strengths. A strategy I apply in my life until today. Sports is truly empowering that should be accessible to people with all identities to lead one’s own life with confidence.”

Silika Shakya

“Sport has played a major role in my life and I wish others to benefit from it as well. I have picked up many important life skills through sport. It has especially taught me how to be a team player as well as a leader.”

Arpana Pradhan
Executive Director, The WE United Project

“Sport is an effective platform to build leadership skills that we can transfer to other domains of life, be it personal or professional. Sports helped me build confidence, team spirit, resilience, and respect in myself, which are values that are not only central to sport but also to the pursuit of gender equality and women’s empowerment.”
