In Egypt, along with the PTLA project, the Innovation through Sport: Promoting Leaders, Empowering Youth (ITSPLEY) project was jointly implemented through CARE’s Gender and Empowerment Unit. ITSPLEY is a pioneering initiative that uses the "convening power of sports" to minimize the effects of poverty and social injustice on marginalized youth, especially girls. ITSPLEY is being implemented in four countries; Bangladesh, Egypt, Kenya, and Tanzania. This United States Agency for International Development(USAID) funded, three-year project began in January 2009 and will conclude in February 2012. Its aim is to enhance the institutional capacity of local organizations working directly with youth, and to provide youth, especially girls, with opportunities to develop and practice leadership skills through sport-based activities.
