African Union Sport Council Survey on women and girls in sport, physical education, and physical activity

The African Union Sports Council (AUSC), the specialized technical office of the African Union (AU) responsible for sport, is conducting a survey to map governmental and non-governmental organizations, networks, and programs focused on promoting the empowerment of girls and women through sport, physical education and physical activity in Africa. Participation in the survey is open to those over the age of 18, who are actively engaged in the aforementioned areas.


Aspiration 6 of the African Union’s Agenda 2063 emphasizes “an Africa whose development is people-driven, dependent on the potential of African people, especially women and youth, and the care of children”. Research has shown that if physical activity is used effectively, it can contribute to the realization of this ambition. The survey results will be used to strengthen policies, organizations, networks, and programs on the African continent. A summary of the results will be made available to participants and interested organizations.


The survey is available in five languages. You can fill out the survey until 31 August 2022 by clicking on one of the following links:
