Women and Sport
The Ministry promotes the increased participation of girls and women in sport in order to empower them and to ensure protection of women and girls. A Technical Working Group (TWG) on Women in Sport was established in 2014 with the aim of advancing the participation of girls and women in sport of their choice. The TWG draws its membership from the Ministry of Sport, Ministry Gender, Ministry of General Education, National Sports Council of Zambia, National Olympic Committee of Zambia and National Paralympic Committee of Zambia.
The Ministry funds women and sport activities through a budget line in the National budget. The funding of such activities is also complimented with assistance of the National Sports Council of Zambia. The activities for women in sport include capacity building.
