US Consulate Lahore organises cricket coaching camp for women
The program promoted gender equality and women’s empowerment through the game of cricket, focusing on leadership and team building skills.
During the camp, the young women attended interactive sessions on team building and leadership skills led by Pakistani field hockey star Rabia Qadir and Pakistani cricketer and commentator Marina Iqbal. Participants also toured the Pakistan Cricket Board Museum and the National Cricket Academy.
Colleen Crenwelge told the talented participants that “investing in women produces positive effects far beyond the individual. Empowering women and ensuring their voices are heard results in stronger families, stronger communities, and stronger countries.”
She added that programs like the cricket camp will build new and lasting relationships and create a network of young women who strive to create positive change through sports.
