    Slum Soccer with Coaches Across Continents

    March 5th, 2013.  Our great partner at Slum Soccer, India prepare for International Women’s Day 2013.

    Venue:- Slum Soccer Academy Bokhara Nagpur

    Date:- 7 to 9th March 2013

    Slum Soccer will be celebrating  International Women’s day with a unique mix of on field and off field activities. In slums girls are not encouraged to play sports, we explain them why soccer is important to their life with female empowerment games. Firstly by encouraging them to participate in games and then once they become comfortable with us then we can approach other important topics like HIV, Health and Nutrition. Among our participants we have seen that as result of participation they have become more confident in their personal lives, they feel safe when to come to our session and talk freely. They have improved their problem solving skill as well as they have learned to respect each other and the coaches

    In the first two days session we will have games on womens empowerment and gender equality, this will be followed by an all womens tournament.

    In the second phase of the celebration we will be conducting interactive sessions where the participants will get a chance to interact with a lawyer and a health worker who will be talking with them on basic human rights issue and general health.

    Coaches Across Continents partners in more than 9 countries will be using Soccer for Social Impact to support International Women’s Day 2013.
