International Day of the Girl Child was marked on 11 October by Peer Educators Network – PEN with sports. Young girls, students of “28 Nëntori” High School, held a football mini-championship. Whereas classmates, boys from the same classroom, and peers from other classes were outside rooting for their favourite team and chanting the slogan “Girls can do it too” and “Who said that girls can’t”.
The opening of the activity was made from the representative of UNFPA Kosovo, followed by the encouraging and supportive words from the school director. In the end, the two final teams were given prices, first place and second place.
The activity was held as part of the “Young Man Initiative” – Be a Man Club project implemented by PEN, and was supported by United Nations Population Fund Kosovo, Unicef Kosovo Programme and OSCE Mission in Kosovo.
