Story

WHY YUWA?

I’ll never forget the moment I first heard about Yuwa's work with girls in rural India, and the football and educational projects it has been running for the last 8 years. I was at a Storytelling Summit hosted by Microsoft. Franz spoke about the challenges that girls in rural communities face - the threat of child trafficking, domestic violence, sexual abuse and being forced into marriage as child brides.

As the mother of two daughters, this is stomach wrenching. Franz spoke about the work that Yuwa has done to address these issues - first building a girl's football team that has traveled the world, representing India in international tournaments, and then building a school that is nurturing the girls' rights to learn and helping them to develop the confidence and resilience needed to become authors of their own fate and leaders within their communities.
