Equip'd case study

Two girls partaking in a muddy challenge

Encouraging Pasifika teenage girls to enjoy and participate in physical activity

This case study has been created for organisations working with young women and girls.

Created by the Harbour Sport SportSPasifik team in 2013, the Equip'd programme came about in response to evidence suggesting low rates of participation in sport and active recreation and high rates of mental health concerns for young Pasifika women.

Equip'd has been successful in engaging many young females. In 2017, the programme worked with four schools on Auckland's North Shore, with 95 students taking part.
