Global Sports Mentoring Program: Majidah Nantanda

Global Sports Mentoring Program: Majidah Nantanda

Building on the success of its inaugural year, the 2013 Global Sports Mentoring Program is the flagship program supporting the U.S. Department of State's initiative to empower women and girls worldwide through sports. Coming together over a shared goal to increase sports opportunities for women and girls around the world, the Department and ESPN first teamed up in 2011 to develop the program. Majidah focused her action plan during the 2013 Global Sports Mentoring Program (GSMP) on creating more opportunities for girls to play soccer at all levels in Uganda and has since made headway in doing so and gained support for her project.
