Africa has been a continent with a long history – a history that has included everything from slavery to corruption.
Today though, it is a new Africa, and one where there is an increasing focus on human skill sets, whether it be the IT industry, helping hone sports talents through moves like joining the International Schools Sports Federation, or even legalizing sports betting to ensure legal compliance. And now, the country is also coming up with an initiative to grow female para-sport. With sports entertainment Kenya, you would love it as a fan and the new female para sports mean that you could just try your hands on betting in a new sport!
Africa is taking small steps towards development and we are sure we have a bright future ahead of us. Here is how growing the female para sport in the country is going to help.
A smart way to promote the females with special abilities
Female equality remains a problem. Statistics, for instance, suggests that in Africa, many females are engaged in escort service. Also, when it comes to women with special abilities, most of them remain unemployed due to a lack of job opportunities and an otherwise unfriendly atmosphere.
To change that, Africa is growing female para sport for those who cannot be or don’t want to be a part of it. For them, it will be a great opportunity to do something productive in their life, and in turn, help in women empowerment.
It is essential to know how many Africans are coming forward to introduce more and more women into para sports.
The Workshop for Women to Promote ParaSporting
This way, women will have their independence while being able to do something important in their life. The International Working Group on Women and Sport is the biggest global women gathering where many African women are active participants.
The International Paralympic Committee has also organised a workshop for women with a key focus on female athletes and the challenges faced by Africa in introducing more female athletes. Held just recently, the workshop did talk about how it was important for the Kenyan society to change to progress forward.
The key takeaways from the workshop
The above workshop has given some major key takeaways that are listed below:
- To change the mentality of the entire population about females with disability along with the females themselves so that they can do something in their life.
- To tell them the importance of sports and encourage them in learning some sports in their life.
- To empower them with the required knowledge and equipment needed to practice the sports and to take part in various events.
- To enable them to be independent and lead their life on their own without the help and support of anybody and create a name.
Africa’s decision to grow female para sport will highly enable their women with disabilities to shape their life despite disabilities and to become independent.
