Innovation Through Sport: Promoting Leaders, Empowering Youth

The Innovation through Sport: Promoting Leaders, Empowering Youth (ITSPLEY) project, administered through CARE’s Gender and Empowerment Unit, is a pioneering initiative that uses the "convening power of sports" to minimize the effects of poverty and social injustice on marginalized youth, especially girls, in four countries. This USAID-funded, three-year project began in Bangladesh, Egypt, Kenya and Tanzania in January 2009 and will conclude in January 2012.
