The five winning teams of the interregional final of the Sport Nature Solidaire Pour Toutes program.
As part of its effort to make empowering women a driver for community development in the South, the Phosboucraa Foundation, supported by the Lagon Dakhla Association, organized the interregional final of the athletics and solidarity program Sport Nature Solidaire Pour Toutes on Saturday, January 19 in Laayoune.
It was a first of its kind in the three Southern regions. On Saturday, January 19, the Phosboucraa Foundation and the Lagon Dakhla Association organized the interregional final of the athletics and solidarity program Sport Nature Solidaire Pour Toutes. Much more than a simple sporting event, this competition was first and foremost a time to celebrate the empowerment of women, an essential condition for community development and to reduce inequalities. Participants in this competition were selected not only for their athletic abilities, but also for their social commitment to their communities. Most of the 70 women who participated competed to support an association or a social cause.
This three-phase competition, which included a nature race, a bootcamp challenge, and a mountain bike race, determined the five most motivated teams that would participate in the Sahraouiya Raid, an international race to be held in Dakhla from February 2 to 9, 2019. With the Sahraouiya challenge, the Phosboucraa Foundation will provide participants from the Southern regions with a unique experience to strengthen their leadership skills while working for social causes.
This isn’t the only empowerment initiative. It builds on other initiatives in this field led by the Phosboucraa Foundation to promote women in the Southern regions. February will certainly be a significant moment for the five teams participating in Sahraouiya, but it will also be a high point for the Phosboucraa Foundation, which will see the results of its hard work.
