sport and theatre are wonderful enablers to open up that side of ourselves that fears to be bold

Our work:

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, empowering themselves and inspiring others.

Why? Because sport and theatre are wonderful enablers to open up that side of ourselves that fears to be bold, overcomes our fear and forces us to grow. 

Why women and girls? Because when one woman or girl is empowered, she has the power to lift one hundred more with her. Empowering women and girls to reach their full potential creates a ripple effect for the most positive change.
