Day 12: Empowering Girls Through Sport

Day 12: Empowering Girls Through Sport

Diversitat became an Inclusion NetSetGo! Centre at the end of 2015 and now fields two Netball teams in the Corio Netball Association Netta competition.

Participants are all from a refugee background and are aged 9 to 15 years. Each player has come from a country where girls either don’t play sports or are not encouraged to do so.

Winning many games and even playing in finals, the girls have embraced the game and have made many new friends in the short time they have been playing. We are excited to see what the future brings for these budding netballers in 2018!

You can support Diversitat by donating to the Celebrating Diversity Christmas Appeal.
