Through football, Yuwa provides a platform for young women to make a change in their world. Football serves as a powerful platform to promote health, education and improved livelihoods among the most important agents for change: young women..
We operate in Jharkhand, India's top source state for human trafficking, with the highest prevalence of child marriages in India. Here, teamwork is a powerful force to combat the primary causes of a young woman's vulnerability.
Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools is helping take Yuwa to the next level, creating and training a cadre of new female coaches. Yuwa selected a first batch of seven young women age 14-17 to attend a special coaching camp organized by BBFS. After eight days in Delhi with the experienced Portuguese coaches of BBFS, Jose and Guilherme, there was an enormous change in their confidence, in themselves and their capacity to teach others. They returned to their villages and are now coaching about 100 girls daily.
Thanks to Anurag, Kishore and everyone at BBFS for bringing some of the best coaching in the world to some of the most deserving players in the world!
