Projects in Localities

Athena assists local authorities in an effort to broaden the pyramid base for women’s sports in Israel, to broaden infrastructures for women’s sports and to create opportunities for mass recruitment of girls and their retention in the various sports, beginning with primary school age – in the local authority, close to home.

Athena enables local authorities to request assistance through a public appeal, and helps the local authorities chosen to create their own unique, different, extraordinary and creative projects, connecting sports with the community and society, while applying affirmative action for girls. In 2015, Athena will support projects in 11 local authorities.
