Let’s put every girl’s future into her own hands.

YUWA USES FOOTBALL TO EMPOWER GIRLS IN INDIA.

Nothing brings together a community of young women like team sports.  Football is simple, safe and inexpensive – an extraordinarily powerful platform to bring girls out of isolation and into a positive team environment.

Football gives girls an outlet and forum for self-expression and self-improvement, a place where a girl realizes her self-worth and her power to break the cycle of poverty.

WHEN YOU EDUCATE A GIRL, EVERYTHING CHANGES.

Yuwa uses football as a platform to combat child marriage and human trafficking in India. Through football, Yuwa provides a platform for young women to gain confidence and skills to make positive changes in their lives. Yuwa’s girls have inspired tens of millions of people throughout India and around the world with their achievements.

With the support of people like you, Yuwa can continue improve and expand to directly reach thousands of girls in Jharkhand, and inspire millions more.

Why Yuwa?

Society teaches girls to fit in.  We coach girls to stand out.

We work with girls from the most impoverished backgrounds.  Each Yuwa girl spends an average of 3 hours daily with Yuwa programs, 6 days a week, year round—nearly 1,000 hours each year.

The reason is simple: this is what girls demanded.

Yuwa girls inspired 200 million people last year through the media.  Watch the highlights.
