1 / Social Commitment - Ladies Turn
Since 2019, ALKÉ has been involved with Ladies Turn to contribute to the development of women's football in Senegal.
The latest programme created by the association is the Jigeen Foot project.
Jigeen means "girl" in Senegalese. The aim of this project is to introduce young girls aged 6 to 12 to football in public primary schools in the Yoff district of Dakar. In this working-class neighbourhood, a former fishing village, girls drop out of school very early and marry very young.
Traditionally, in the physical activity and sports programmes established by the Senegalese Ministry of Education, girls are excluded from football, which is exclusively reserved for boys. The project thus aims to enable girls to play on an equal footing with boys and to allow them to emancipate themselves. In parallel to the sports activity, an education programme is put in place to develop leadership skills, to know and master their rights.
Through the 1% contribution, ALKÉ has made it possible to finance the purchase of goals for the schools. These will allow the practice and sustainability of the activities in the long term.
A word from Seyni Ndir Seck, founder of Ladies Turn:
"ALKÉ gives its all to help Ladies Turn succeed in its mission. To this day ALKÉ continues to support us not only financially or materially, but also in terms of human resources, because every time we need them to write projects, they are there, they accompany us in the writing, the realisation and I think this is very important and it allows us to move forward. "
2 / Football at any age.
Since its creation, ALKÉ has sponsored the Footeuses à Tout Âge team.
The objective of this association is to promote recreational football through intergenerational sharing, to encourage the creation of a women's recreational football section and to provide information on physical activities specific to sportswomen over 50. Because there is no age limit for playing football!
A commitment supported by Marie-France, whose portrait you can read here: (https://alkesoccer.com/fr/page/portrait-marie-france-gosselet)
This year, the Footeuses à Tout Âge are going to South Africa to compete in the very first "Mamies Foot" World Cup, and we are behind them!
3 / Commitment to the Field & Territories
In 2022, ALKÉ took part in the Nous-Mêmes project, a project of sports encounters around the fight against gender stereotypes, led by Mélina Boetti, in partnership with the UNSS and two schools in different regions - Salies-du-Salat in the Haute Garonne and Argenteuil in the Val d'Oise. The aim is to bring together the players of the two women's sections of the schools, belonging to different territories and backgrounds, and to delve into their specificities and their meeting points. For this project and the meeting of the two teams which took place last May, we offered them the possibility of realizing themselves through the football jersey, jerseys designed by the players of each college and worn during an opposition around their passion for football.
As part of this project, we had the chance to participate in a meeting between these players and the pioneers of Reims, those who made history, an article on the subject can be found here: (https://alkesoccer.com/fr/page/a-la-rencontre-des-pionnieres-de-reims)
Séreilhac - Changing rooms to welcome the club's women
We know that the infrastructures are at the centre of the reception of the players and that the reception is an important lever to allow the young girls, the women, to feel at their place on the playing field.
The municipality of Séreilhac (Haute-Vienne) has thus committed itself to the creation of changing rooms dedicated to women in its project to renew its sports infrastructure, to enable everyone to play football in good conditions. Until now, women footballers have been forced to change in a room that is not designed for this purpose.
Not only does this situation not allow the current team to train in the best conditions, but it also dissuades women from joining their local team.
A participatory financing project has been set up with the Villyz platform and 1% of the funds raised will be dedicated to the production of outfits for the club's women. Within this framework, ALKÉ is offering the creation of a unique jersey for the new changing rooms.
4 / Pink October
ALKÉ supports Pink October, to raise awareness among women on and around the pitch in the fight against breast cancer. The action initiated in 2019 is renewed every year to put the spotlight on women's football and show its commitment to fight together against this disease.
In 4 editions, this operation initiated by the Breton club of the JUP has enabled more than €25,000 to be donated to associations and has brought together more than 37 clubs in France and abroad.
The call for applications for the next edition will be open soon, stay tuned!
