In Battambang the average wage is less than $0.50 a day, far below the internationally recognised poverty level. Consequently, many young people drop out of school in order to begin working and helping their families. In addition, young girls are often exposed to domestic abuse and human trafficking.

 

SALT Academy uses football as a tool to impact positive change in the community. Team sports are a powerful agent for effective change and as a tool to promote education, good health, and gender equality. SALT empowers the community’s young people, with the aim of developing strong leaders who will one day lead the next generation.

 

The Mighty Girls programme creates safe spaces as a means to combat human trafficking, ensures proper education and mentorship for young women in the community and provides access to quality football training to break down social norms of gender discrimination.

 

SALT Academy carries out its programming year round running three different leagues.
