Empowering women and girls through sport and theatre

Running. Sharing experiences. Making theatre.

What we do

Run The World helps women and girls take their first steps into running, create a safe environment for sharing experiences and together help them create a piece of theatre from those stories. Participants have full autonomy over their stories and how they are shared thereby, empowering themselves and inspiring others.

Our Goal

We are committed to working with women and girls as it is globally recognised that sport and theatre can be a force to amplify women’s voices, tear down gender barriers, fight discrimination and take a step towards gender equality. We endeavour to use sport and theatre to give women and girls everywhere a chance to experience a full and empowered life.
