Each month we focus on a different theme in Khelo Rugby and for March we are working on issues surrounding International Women's Day. While we do mark the day in different ways each year - the girls from Bethel Academy #BreakTheBias. It is also important we help all our children to understand the issues and how we can all be a part of solutions.

Some of the questions we seek to discuss are:

  • What do we mean by gender equality?
  • How do biases show themselves in our communities?
  • Is there anything we can do to make everyone have a fair chance?

Even as adults we can struggle with these issues so giving young people the chance to discuss and think about how their community works can be empowering. And when the charcha is led by young people from the same or similar communities everyone is learning.
