Yuwa uses football as a platform to combat child marriage and human trafficking in India. We operate in Jharkhand, a region with the highest prevalence of child marriages and human trafficking in India, with an estimated 100,000 girls trafficked each year.
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.
A number of sponsorship opportunities are available for your organization to support Yuwa, our mission and our movement. With the support of partners like you, Yuwa can continue improve and expand to directly reach thousands of girls in Jharkhand, and inspire millions more. Our team will be pleased to discuss this with you and continue taking this relationship forward.
Quality education unlocks a world of possibility, but in their houses, educating girls is a low priority. Girls are kept from studying because they are expected to spend their time with housework and labor.
Inside a simple concrete classroom, Yuwa girls use technology to discover the wonders of language, math, and science. In the Indian state ranked worst for female illiteracy, Yuwa girls defy the odds–and define their own futures.
You can give girls a space of their own, enabling them to explore their potential and bring their dreams within reach.
