Activyst is a combination of two words - active and catalyst - because when girls are active, it’s a catalyst for change in their lives. Three American women were inspired to found Activyst based on their personal experiences. Their mission is to change the world by helping girls play sports.
Through selling bold and functional athletic bags, Activyst generates funding for girls’ sports organizations worldwide. The benefits of girls involvement in sports have been proven by studies showing that a girl who plays sports is less likely to get pregnant or stay in an abusive relationship. She is more educated, healthier, and happier. Unfortunately, girls’ sports opportunities are often least available where they’re most needed. In many under-served communities, playing sports is not an option for girls.
